Excellent! By pruning and staking zucchini, you can grow them in significantly less space, with no loss of productivity. Here’s how it works. - Plant a 4′ stake in the ground right next to your zucchini. It’s best to do this at the time you plant the seeds, so you don’t risk damaging the roots. - As the zucchini grows and produces fruit, cut off all leaves between the fruit and the ground. When it gets long enough, tie the vine to the stake.
