Watermelon in raised bed

Asked February 16, 2016, 1:54 PM EST

Good afternoon,
I am seriously considering planting watermelon in a raised bed. It has plenty of room to grow, though it will be shared with squash. Do you recommend this?

Sorry was out all last week at Stock Shows

you can grow anything you want in raise beds. with watermelons just need to prepare for room around the raised bed for the vines to spread out.

if you try keep the vines confined to the raised bed. you may have some trouble with air flow that can allow fungus to start growing on the leaves.

good luck
