You can purchase plants from a local nursery. Dig a small hole, place the plant and fill in the hole. The plant should be in a place where it will get plenty of sun. Give the plant enough water to keep the leaves firm, but not so much the ground is muddy. Consider a small fence if wildlife are near.

Easiest vegetables to grow. Summer squash is fast growing. Full sun, water regularly will boost yield. rich soil, lots of good organic matter like well-rotted manure. The bush variety can be grown in containers. Fertilizer with water soluble 5-5-5 or a 10-10-10 every 3 weeks. Pick anytime, smaller more flavor.

You will need to weed the garden on a regular basis. Plant them far apart so they will not hover over one another. You will need to check the plants several times because once they start blooming they really put out the squash fast. Yellow squash is a easy low maitenance vegetable.

Squash needs fertile soil, full sun, and room for the squash to vine out. The amount of space needed depends on the particular variety you are growing. Squash should be watered, fertilized, and weeded regularly.

Yellow squash is easy to deal with. Just plant your seeds, water as needed and make sure you have lots of room in your garden. If you do not have lots of room consider using a metal cage or a trellis... just tie the vines upward as they start growing.

Not much is needed for growing yellow squash. We had 5 yellow squash plants grow this year from the compost we put on all our other plants. Sun and water were the keys to growing the squash. We did put a cage around two of the plants to keep squirrels away. Other than that they have been self sufficient.

All squash like sunny location and fertile soil. Plants need to be spaced five to six feet apart. They have shallow roots, so need to be kept well watered.

Yellow squash grows easily. You can get a head start buying the plants, but seeds are very easy. Mound up some organic soil, put in 3 or 4 seeds, cover with more soil and water. After the seedlings have several sets of leaves, use a mild 10-10-10 fertilizer. Water and look out!!
