    I have a very large squash plant in my back yard, and I absolutely love it! However, we are having work done in our back yard, and they will have to kill the plant if I don't transplant it...within the hour. So I was wondering if I could possibly cut down all of the large stalks and vines so that it is much smaller, and transplant it that way. Will the stalks and vies grow back if I cut them down? Or is there a better way to transplant my huge squash plant?
    Thanks,
    Sophie

    Most likely. I'd suggest taking some cuttings from the newer growth and trying to root them. Perhaps attempt to root at a leaf node.
