    Default What to do with my Sweet Dumpling squash plants?

    I have grown a couple of sweet dumpling squash plants but don't know what to do with them. I "temporarily" potted them into MFBs a month ago and they've just kept growing and now I don't know what to do. I don't know if I should attempt to lift them up and put them into a more suitable container or leave them where they are.

    The are currently in my greenhouse which has a concrete floor therefore I'm restricted to growing in containers. I've recently been working a lot of hours and it's a struggle to get the time to do what I need to in the garden. I will have most of Tues, Wed and Thurs off so can dedicate a bit of time then.

    Thanks in advance

    Firstly I'm so so SO jealous! They are stunning looking plants ( it's nice to see what they are supposed to be like! ). I built my sweet dumplings a climbing frame to go up. They're still not up to the first rung ( 6" above the ground)
    As you can tell I'm an expert at growing them so I'd leave them exactly where they are.

    Thanks SP, I'm glad to hear that you're jealous when you seem to be the resident expert on the topic I think I'll leave them be and try to construct some sort of frame to coax them up.

    I'm really really really not an expert
