Advertisement Has anybody else here tried this? I was told it wouldn't work because of the wide spreading root system but I've got little melons so far. I live where melons don't grow, alkaline soil and rocks here, so I'm trying it this way. It might work for you dooods in apartments, I'll keep you updated. I'm growing heirloom(non-hybrid) moons and stars. I'm going to save the seeds if I get melons and I'll be willing to dish them out here if anybody will be interested later.
