While zucchinni is generally considered a sprawl plant that can overtake an area, I've had success with bush type zucchinni that only consume a 5-6' circle. Myself, that doesn't constitute sprawl, like a cucumber or melon plant will.

THe bush type can be had in green, yellow, and orange. I've even had the plant brown up 90% in september then rejuvinate and produce fruit in october.

Woody, I myself didnt know how big these plants got and these are far from mature and already overcrowding the small space that i already have. I'm contemplating either removing the bush in the middle, as it is VERY close to my cukes plant, or removing both. . if hwat you say is true. Please lemme knwo what you suggest. . .

This year I bought Burpee seeds for almost everything, not happy with germination percentages, NK(northrupking?), seeds have been good to me in the past.

Last year it was bedding plants, original source unknown. We'll see what the burpee style does.

Maybe I'll try an organic seed producer next year.

Welcome to the club.

Burpee cost a fortune for seed and like you said if they germinate..
I have some nice luck with Value Seed.com
99 cent postage, and most of them grew.. Howerver they dont carry much veggies.

Welcome to the world of the big commercial seed manufacturers! Consider buying your seed from some of the more reputable, smaller sources like Sandhill Preservation, SSE, Tomato Growers Supply, Marianne's, Victory, etc. It puts money in the pockets of average, hard working Americans and not into corporations looking to eradicate open-pollinated seed from the gene pool in favor of income-producing, proprietary hybrids.

I like Pinetree seeds out of Maine. It is a bunch of moms that seem to run the place. Very cheap. I get potatoes and glads there too.

Johnct-
Verrrryy interesting, will keep my eyes open for other sources of seed. Good seed is worth a little extry.

Thanks for the names.
