SOW: from March (indoors) to the end of May, under cover or on a window sill, 1 seed per pot. Keep moist, but not waterlogged.
GROW: harden off and plant out after all danger of frost has passed. In cooler areas you can protect young plants with cloches until they have settled in. Midnight is happy grown in a large pot or tub. Courgettes are trouble free and prolific - keep an eye on them and keep picking!
EAT: try young courgettes (finger thick) sliced and pan fried of diced into an omelette. Midnight stays tender and flavourful even when it grows a bit bigger than you intended! To Freeze – slice or dice, (you can blanch for 1 minute, but we never have) pack into portions and freeze.
