COURGETTE


Tips & tricks: Plant out at a distance of 75cm from each other & water in well. They like plenty of warmth, so pick out a nice sunny spot for them. Harvest as they develop, the smaller you harvest the more tender & intense the flavour.

The more often you pick the more they will produce, don't let any get too big otherwise the plant will focus all its energy there and not produce much else. Watch out, they can become enormous in just a couple of days, so keep an eye on them! The flowers are also edible.

I'd recommend having at least 2 plants for better pollination.
