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 'Shooting Star' F1 Hybrid

Cucurbita pepo, Zucchini

British breeding and a world first in climbing golden skinned courgettes. Shooting Star makes a stunning space-saving plant when grown up a trellis/arch. Group 3 plants together to ensure good pollination and tie in stems regularly to support the weight of fruits. The fruits have a higher 'dry matter' (less watery) than many varieties so are firmer when sliced for salads and stir fries. Harvest fruits regularly to extend the season. More info
