Courgette - All Green Bush
These tiny French delicacies are one of the highlights of the vegetable year. Courgette All Green Bush is easy to grow and heavy cropping.
Sow seeds in spring 1cm deep in a good seed compost. Germination usually takes 6-10 days at 24C. The seeds can also be sown where they are to crop in late spring/early summer once the soil has warmed up. Sow 3 seeds every 60cm and thin out to the best seedling. Transplant when large enough to handle into 8cm (3in) pots and grow on in cooler conditions. Gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions for 1-15 days before planting out after all risk of frost, 6cm apart in a sunny sheltered spot on rich well. Water regularly and feed every 14 days once the courgettes start to develop. Pick regularly while small 1-16cm and don't leave any on to grow large or cropping will be impaired.
