Sowing and Growing Guide

Green Bush Courgette

Indoor Sowing:

  • Sow seeds indoors in 7.5cm pots from mid-April to late May.
  • Use good quality compost and sow the seeds 2.5cm deep.
  • Keep the pots in a warm, sunny place or under grow lights at a temperature of around 18-21°C.
  • Seedlings should emerge in 7-14 days.
  • Once the seedlings have developed their second set of leaves, they can be transplanted into their final growing position.

Outdoor Sowing:

  • Sow seeds outdoors in late May to early June when the soil has warmed up.
  • Sow seeds 2.5cm deep in rows 90cm apart.
  • Thin out the seedlings to 60cm apart.
  • Choose a sunny, sheltered spot with well-draining soil.

Growing:

  • Water regularly and keep the soil moist but not waterlogged.
  • Feed every two weeks with a high potash fertiliser once the plant starts flowering.
  • Harvest when the courgettes are about 10-15cm long.
  • Regular harvesting will encourage the plant to produce more fruit.
  • Check the plant for pests and diseases regularly, and take appropriate action if necessary.
