i am growing a squash in the greenhouse some fruit have set and some just go brown and drop off
i have given it feed and watered well, it is planted in a large tub in a mixture of good manure and home made compost
Until an expert replies to this and puts us all right, I'll say that I have grown a few squash outside and in containers but wouldn't say successfully because I tend to let them ramble and neglect them for days on end....lucky to find I've grown a few small ones as the plants die back. It seems they are very demanding plants ... need a lot of everything: water, feed, warmth and attention to removing excess fruits, to get a decent crop. Pity but I lack the dedication for them, when there are so many other things to do. You seem to be doing all right but they tend to outgrow a greenhouse environment. Best of luck.
thanks for the replies i will just carry on ans see what happens
