I have 1m square veg boxes. In one I've only planted a few pumpkin seedlings. Can i use the rest of the space to grow watermelon? Will they be compatible?

In that space, you will only be able to grow 1 or 2 pumpkin or watermelon vines. Both require a lot of room.

A 1 square meter garden would only support about1- 2 pumpkin plants. Or only 1-2 water melons. About 3-4 cucumber plants. Just think how big the plants will grow and how much nutrient they will require.
