mickcarruk..........Butternuts like lots of space and deep rich soil. It's not only how many fruits you can obtain per plant but how many will be able to ripen.
You don't appear to have an awful lot of space in that bed.
Growing vertically ? Certainly possible but with such large heavy fruit, you will need to be able to support them as they form.
Same problem tho whether horizontal or vertical - depth of soil and width to expand ?
