Courgette 'Tromboncino' - Pack of 5 Seeds Cucurbita pepo
Sow: April to May Harvest: July to September Height: 1.5m+
Wonderful long courgettes that can be left to develop on the plant and will grow to well over a metre long. This is a climbing variety that can reach heights of over 2 metres in a polytunnel.
Can be used as courgettes when young and small or as an autumn squash when fully grown.
Sow two seeds in a 7cm pot and then thin to the stongest seedling when true leaves appear. Sow the seeds on their side to reduce the risk of rotting.
Seeds germinate in 7-14 days.
Grow plants on and plant out when all risk of frost has passed. Courgettes like a lot of heat and a nutrient rich soil, so plant where they will receive full sun and feed regularly with a balanced fertiliser.
