Hello, everyone. I went to the EB site and it did say, 4 per EB. It did not specify what variety of squash. I'm thinking about butternut squash. Please let me know if you have grown them in EBs. Thank you.

It's my first time growing Squash in an EB. Actually I'm using a GP with the EB replant kit. To me, 4 squash plants seemed like too many. I went with 3 instead.

we put 4 zucchini per box...they grew so large you couldn't reach across to water...they were monsters so much so that I pulled them out a few days ago because of a space issue...

I had 2 zucchini in an EB last year, and they got huge. I can't really see 4 of them.

Three is my max. Two on one side and one on the other with the fertilizer down the middle.

Thank you very much for the response. Someone better write to EB, LOL.

Now, I'm really excited!
