Courgette 'Green Bush' - Pack of 5 Seeds Cucurbita pepo
Sow: April to May Harvest: July to October Height: 1.8m+ Spread: 1.5m+
Not the fanciest of courgettes, but the best all-rounder there is. Has good resistance to powdery mildew.
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.
Leaf form with a good resistance to bolting, making this an excellent selection for growing in a greenhouse or polytunnel.
