Familiar with buttercup squash?
How long do buttercup vines grow? Can they be trellised a little? A lot?
The plan is to plant seed saved from grocery store squash-- buttercup (not butternut). When growing vining squash I like to prepare the soil only where I plant the seeds, so that the vines will just grow out over adjacent grass & weeds, which conserves my energy and the surrounding soil. However, I have only one area left to plant my seeds and am trying to get an idea whether buttercup vines will grow so long that they encroach on other plants or grow out into the street.
Also can luffa and buttercup cross pollinate? Luffa is fairly close, but I would not want them to cross.
