I'd set myself a bit of a challenge - I wanted to grow my favourite veg - BNS - in NE Scotland. I stared them off early inside and transferred them outside when it warmed up. I grew one plant in an old rusty wheelbarrow and let it romp down some old railways sleeper steps to great effect and success. I plan on growing lots more this year, they store so well and are so tasty.
This has been a consistently succesful crop for me and even won first prize in our local horticultural show this year. Have found that they grow extremely well when trained up a wigwam of canes - useful when space is short. I know I am in the south, but the past two summers have been very poor and they have still cropped very heavily and kept well in a cool garage for many months.
I live on the coast in the North West of England and was unsure if I would be able to grow Butternut Squash, but the catalogue stated that this variety would growth as far north as Lancashire (!), so I gave it a try and have had great success! Superb fruits and excellent flavour. A must!
