Watermelons

Is it possible to grow a watermelon in a lare pot? I've read that you can, but I've also read that you cannot. I want to grow more things but I am unfortunateky confined to pots and container planting for now. can watermelons be done this way?

It is possible but they will not be happy. Choose a bush type ‘Sugar Baby’ Watermelon is the easiest to grow, do not choose a seedless variety. Make sure the plant is healthy with lots of water and regular fertilizer application.  Watch out for insects and diseases they are quite susceptible in a stressful situation. Nothing smaller than a 16 inch container.

They are generally vining plants that need a lot of room to sprawl out.  I'd make sure you have a REALLY big pot!
