Pumpkin, Squash & Courgette Seeds


Courgettes need lots of water, so it's a good idea to put a plant pot in the ground close to each plant and water into it - that way the water goes to the roots, where it's most needed. If you're growing pumpkins and squashes make sure that you've got enough space, as they can take up quite a lot of room in your veg patch! You could grow them on the top of an open compost heap, where they'll be perfectly happy.

Courgette 'Defender' F1 Hybrid - Part of the Alan Titchmarsh Collection

Cucurbita pepo, Zucchini

 
  • Heavy cropper
  • Virus tolerant

A very heavy cropper and recommended as it is capable of producing twice the amount of fruits compared to other courgettes. The plants have an open habit which makes harvesting easy. Courgette 'Defender' is a perfect garden variety as it has excellent Cucumber Mosaic virus resistance. Height: 45cm (18"). Spread: 90cm (35").
Culinary note: Some parts of these flowers are edible. For more details about edible flowers click here.


Companion planting: Try growing courgettes with Calendula to attract pollinating insects which will in turn pollinate your courgette flowers.
