My watermelon plant is taking over my garden space and is about 6 feet going each way. Can I tie it up to contain it or what would you suggest.
Thank you

About the only way to contain a watermelon plant is to cut the ends of the vines off. Wait until your plants have begun to set fruit, though. When there are two or three small melons on a vine you can snip off the end of the vine. It will stop growing but it will still support the fruits. Good luck with your garden.
