    hi all I’ve got some watermelons growing at great speed in the tunnel.

    Should I just let them scramble over the floor like pumpkins or should I encourage them upwards?

    Thanks,

    James

    Bearing in mind how big they get, I think the floor would be best, unless you have a good way of supporting the fruit.
