Sow seeds April to early June indoors 2cm (¾in) deep, in 7.5cm (3in) pots of moist seed sowing mix. Place in a propagator or warm place, and keep at a constant temperature of between 20-25°C (68-77°F). After sowing, do not exclude light as this helps germination. Keep the surface of the seed sowing mix moist but not waterlogged;germination will usually take 5-7 days. Once germinated, grow courgettes in cooler conditions until all risk of frost has passed and the plants are large enough to be transplanted. Gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 - 10 daysbefore planting in rich, fertile, well drained soil in full sun, at a distance of 90cm (36in) apart. When growing courgettes, a thick mulch of organic matter spread around the plants will help to conserve moisture at the roots.

Alternatively, direct sow courgettes at a depth of 2cm (3/4 in)and at a distance of 90cm (36in) apart. Sow 2 seeds per station and thin out the weakest seeding after germination.

Water regularly and feed with an organic liquid fertiliser every 14 days.

Pick regularly to achieve heaviest crops. Pick remaining ripe fruits before autumn frosts. Will store for several months in a cool, airy, frost-free position.
