Keeping squash from getting out of control. Some gardeners are afraid to grow summer squash in a small space - not me, though. Whether it's yellow crookneck or zucchini, it's only got a 2' x 2' space alotted to grow in if it wants to grow in my garden. Upside down tomato cages are used to keep the leaves from sprawling out everywhere, which is quite effective - at least in my experience. Daily attention is needed to make this happen though, as the leaves must be kept inside
Plants have best friends just like people do. Marigolds help tomatoes and roses grow better. Nasturtiums keep bugs away from squash and broccoli. Petunias protect beans from beetles and oregano chases them away from cucumbers. Geraniums keep Japanese beetles away from roses and corn. Chives make carrots sweeter, and basil makes tomatoes even tastier.
