Loads of tasty courgettes but the plant (in a new raised bed) took up an enormous amount of room and stretched across the path too. If you want a compact plant keep it in a pot and don't be tempted to grow it in open ground.

Planting & Harvesting

Sow & Grow

Sow indoors for surest results, March-May, 1.5cm (½") deep, on edge, in small pots of compost. Water well and place in a warm position. A temperature of 15-20°C (60-68°F) is ideal. Keep moist. Seedlings usually appear in 7-14 days. Gradually accustom plants to outside conditions (avoid frosts), before planting out, directly into compost in individual 35cm (14") patio pots with drainage holes, during May-June when frosts are over. Alternatively, plant out, 45cm (18") apart, into fertile soil or compost. Or sow outdoors, April-May for ease, where they are to crop, 1.5cm (½") deep, directly into patio pots, or allowing 45cm (18") between sowing positions. Early sowings benefit from cloche protection. Water well until plants are established. Harvest: July-October. Harvest regularly when fruits are 10-15cm (4-6") long.

Hint's & Tips

Little space - no problem: Specially selected to grow in containers or small garden spaces, so good crops of tasty, nutritious vegetables can be harvested from your patio, balcony or courtyard.

When harvesting please discard any bitter tasting fruits. We suggest carrying out a ‘tongue tip taste test’, particularly when harvesting the first fruits from a new plant.
