Help! I am a first time,Help! I am a first time, accidental pumpkin grower. My kids planted them, and the plants are taking over, and twisting around neighboring flowering plants that I love. They were planted in a fairly unoccupied corner, but the vine has grown about 15 feet along the base of many other plants, and there are vines climbing up and twisting around the other plants, some of which belong to my neighbors. Is there any way I can prune the pumpkin plants back at this point (were planted as seedlings around Memorial Day) without killing the entire vine? Otherwise I may have to pull the whole thing out, I'm so terrified what it might be doing to the beautiful plants around it. Many thanks for your advice.
