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 'Partenon' F1 Hybrid

Cucurbita pepo, Zucchini, Courgetter 'Parthenon'

Extra early crops of excellent flavoured, dark green, slightly speckled cylindrical fruits. Courgette 'Partenon' has a parthenocarpic habit, meaning it has the ability to set fruit without pollination. So even when grown under glass or during poor summers when pollinating insects are scarce, you will have a plentiful harvest of succulent courgettes. 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.
