i am a novice to intermediate gardener, i have a fairly large garden and planted about 25 sweet corn in one section, 25 sunflowers in another section, and 8 pumpkin plants in another section,
everything is thriving and doing very well, especially the pumpkin plants,
the 8 pumpkin plants are in a section that is about 8 feet by 4 feet, spaced evenly apart, in 2 rows of 4 plants, is this too close together?
when i planted the seeds i wasn't expecting them to all come up, or grow as well as they have, so i thought i would plant more to be safe, but they all did come up and grow very well,
should i be removing some of them?....or are they okay that close together?
They are also hungry feeders.if you loathed to give them you could try growing a few vertically?
