Do you think I am being ambitious trying to grow either three Sweet dumpling or 2 Sdumpling and one Ute upright with canes and net in a 18foot wise end of a polyhouse?

Many Thanks
Jackie

I grow my squash outdoors over an old polytunnel frame, but they do need tying in and support. I have grown quite large Red Kuri successfully this way, the smaller pumpkins do well, this year Munchkin and Bubble and Squeak. I've never tried them in a greenhouse but see no reason not to, except the foliage will act as shading for anything else you have in there?
If it's not pouring with rain, I'm either in the garden or at the lottie! Probably still there in the rain as well TBH....🥴
