Planting & Harvesting

Sow & Grow

Sow indoors, for surest results, 1.5cm (½in) 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 90cm (3ft) apart, when frosts are over.

Or sow outdoors for ease, where they are to crop, 1.5cm (½in) deep directly into finely prepared soil which has already been watered. Allow 90cm (3ft) between sowing positions. Sow two seeds on edge per position. Early sowings benefit from cloche protection. Thin to leave the stronger plant. Water well until plants are established. Cut the courgettes when they are about 20cm (8in) long, or leave to mature as marrows.

Hint's & Tips

Harvest regularly to encourage plants to continue cropping through the season.

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.
