Where to Sow
Sow seed on edge 1.5cm (1/2") deep to prevent rotting. Sow in pots or trays during April to May, 2.5cm (1") apart under glass at 20°C (68°F) using good quality seed sowing compost. Sow outdoors mid-May to June direct into growing site 1.5cm (1/2") deep 2 to 3 seeds in each position 60cm (24") apart.
What to do next
Greenhouse sowings should be gradually hardened off once they have developed their first pair of rough leaves and then transplant to the growing site in late-May to early-June 60cm (24") apart. Outdoor sowings should be thinned to one plant per station.
Pick regularly to ensure that plants continue to crop. The larger round courgette fruits are ideal for stuffing or baking.
