Rampant gourd growth

Gourd plants have an amazing ability to grow and thrive when they have the right conditions. Every time I visit the gourd garden, the vines are spreading further; taking over a stump, climbing up trees, and heading off across the wood stack.

You can discipline the plants by un-tangling the clinging tendrils and moving the vines around to point in the direction you actually want them to grow, or you can chop the growing tip off the vines before they take over your back garden. It won’t harm the plant, and will ensure more of that growing energy goes into the rest of your plant and into the fruit.
