Squash in buckets.
My wife and I started some summer squash seeds using peat pellets. Now the original intention was to grow these in 5 gallon buckets, however this has been a subject of debate. Our questions:
1. I put 2 seeds per pellet, and she says we have to remove one of the sprouts per pellet. I say these two are fine and can be planted as one plant.
2. I say 5 gallon buckets are fine, one plant per bucket and there will be plenty of room for the roots, and the plant will just vine down over the side. She claims this won't work. We'll have to use a trellis or something. Or grow it in the ground.
Growing it in the ground is not an option. We have a fat clay with very little topsoil. That attempt failed last year.
Thanks for the help.
