New British breeding in Courgettes. One of the earliest to set fruit in the UK’s unpredictable summer weather. An open plant habit allows maximum sunlight penetration to aid rapid fruit development and good air circulation to minimise disease.
How to sow
Sow seed, 2cm(3/4in) deep in 7.5cm(3in) pots of free-draining compost. Place in a propagator or seal container inside a polythene bag and place at 20-25C (68-77F) until after germination which takes 5-7 days. Do not exclude light, as this helps germination.
How to grow
Gradually acclimatise plants to outdoor conditions for a few days before planting out after all risk of frost, 60cm (24in) apart.
