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.
