Answer: Growing your squash on a trellis not only saves garden space, it increases the yield of your plants. Any wooden trellis will do; most nurseries carry them. Or you can use 1-inch-mesh chicken wire attached to a wooden or metal frame. Summer squash varieties that vine, such as 'Yellow Straightneck' will easily climb up the supports. You can tie the vines to the trellis at 1-foot intervals. Squash can also be grown in 3'-4'-high wire cages. If any fruits grow so large they need support, you can tieold nylon stockings to the trellis to cradle them.
