Courgette & Marrow
We don’t like struggling to cope with a huge harvest and it seems the best way to deal with prolific courgettes is to grow less plants – this is why we sell you 6 seeds. This will give you plenty of courgettes without being over-run! Sow in modules, one per pot, inside in late April/early May and plant out after frosts.
