I bought a packet of 10 squash seeds, found 12 in the packed and 6 have sprouted. I kept them indoors as I haven't got a greenhouse, but I'm going on holiday for 2 weeks next Monday and was wondering what I should do with them.
I planted out my runner beans in their pots yesterday, as they have all come through - will they be O.K. as the weather is forecast to get colder later this week - I'm in Kent.
I have got one of those plastic Grow houses - if I put the squash plants in there will they be O.K. ?
My neighbour will water the garden and the plants in pots.
Also I was intending to plant the squashes in a large pot, the same size as those with the runner beans in. Will that be big enough and do I need poles to support them when they grow up ? I don't have an allotment nor much room in the flower borders, although I do have a long trough I could put them in.
