ONLY Three Seeds Covered this Trellis with Giant Gourds

Last winter I sketched out the shape of trellis I drempt up.

Then I went to the metal yard, built it and in spring, I planted 3 seeds. ONLY THREE seeds.  Here’s our gourd trellis now.

    Do you think that Waltham Butternut Winter Squash and Howden Pumpkin would do well on a trellis if their roots were in REALLY good soil? (equal mix of compost, peat moss and vermiculite)

      Most gourds have big root systems, so if you are talking about growing in a container, it would take lots of water and fertilizer.
