Courgette Sure Thing

  • Dark green, speckled courgettes, 15-20cm in length are produced onparthenocarpic plants – pollination by insects is not needed – whichshow good resistance to powdery mildew until late in the season.Fruits have a stronger flavour than many green courgette varieties.

  • Sow seed, 1cm (½in) deep in 7.5cm (3in) pots of free draining compost. Place in a propagator or seal container inside a polythene bag and place at 20-25°C (68-77°F) until after germination which takes 7-10 days. Do not exclude light as this helps germination.

  • Gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions for 10-15 days before planting out after all risk of frost, minimum 75cm (30in) apart. Can also be sown direct outdoors once the soil has warmed. Sow 2 seeds every 75cm (30in) and thin out to the best seedling.
