What are the pros? Grows great, not much for pest
What are the cons? Grows great, not much for pest
I put one of these in with my pumpkin patch. we made a trellis out of branches from 2 fallen trees. There are another 3 plants over by the cukes. The last 2 are out in an empty field.
The great thing about these plants is also the bad thing. These guys grow and grow and grow and grow and grow. There isn't much to stop or slow them down shy of a clippers. I didn't expect them to grow quite as wild as they did. I had 2 big gourds right from the start with the plant out by the Pumpkins. Between all of the other plants, I have about 40 gourds growing with many more that might make it yet this year. I originally got worried that they wouldn't produce, it was the last of my vines to flower. Now there are still 99 white flowers out there... ha..
I haven't started drying them yet, but wanted to comment on these great growing plants.
