I hadn't heard about squashes rooting themselves Lucky. This year is the first year I have grown them and yes, they are very healthily spreading themselves. They are aboutone and a half metres long. Surely they would need something very substantial to support the weight of the squashes. Any ideas? An old pair of tights, one of those red mesh onion bags?
Also despite them spreading well, there doesn't seem to be any flowers yet. Are they self pollinating or will they need some help. If so how?
In answer to the original question, I sowed mine at the beginning of May in a heated propogator.
