Cucumber varieties, such as Burpee Pickler, are vining plants which reach less than a foot high, but spread 4 to 6 feet in all directions. They can be kept a bit more compact by turning the vines around the edges to grow back across the plant. This technique can also be used to train them down a planting bed or row. If you want a more compact plant, try a bush type such as Burpee's Picklebush.

Eggplants generally reach about 3-4 feet high in the south.
