Half hardy Annual

Description – Easy to grow, delicious succulent vegetable with so many original ways to prepare. A prolific cropper producing tasty courgettes over a very long period for cooking and deep freezing.

Sowing – Sow seeds in spring 1 cm (½ inch) deep in a good seed compost. Germination usually takes 6-10 days at 24C (75F). Can also be sown where they are to crop in late spring/early summer once the soil has warmed up. Sow 3 seeds every 60cm (24 inches) and thin out to the best seedling.

Growing – Transplant when large enough to handle into 8cm (3 inch) pots and grow on in cooler conditions. Gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions for 1-15 days before planting out after all risk of frost, 6cm (24 inches) apart in a sunny sheltered spot.

Aftercare – Water regularly and feed every 14 days once the courgettes start to develop. Pick regularly while small 1-16cm (4 to 6 inches) and don’t leave any on to grow large or cropping will be impaired.

Harvest – August to October
