Thompson & Morgan Courgette Shooting StarAsk a Question
British breeding and a world first in climbing golden skinned courgettes. Stunning space saving plant when grown up a trellis/arch. The fruits are less watery than many varieties so firmer when sliced for salads and stir fries. Harvest regularly to extend the season.
Sow mid-April to early June under glass for transplanting outdoors. Sow 2cm (3/4in) deep in 7.5cm (3in) pots of good seed compost. Place in a propagator or seal container inside a polythene bag and place at 21-25C (70-77F) until after germination which takes 5-7 days. Can also be sown direct outdoors from mid-May once the soil has warmed and risk of frost has passed, 2.5cm (1in) deep at 60cm (24in) apart in rows 60cm (24in) apart.
Gradually acclimatise plants to outdoor conditions for a few days before planting out after all risk of frost has passed, 60cm (24in) apart each way. Group 3 plants together to ensure pollination. Feed with potash fertiliser once fruiting begins. Tie stems regularly to support the weight of fruit. Water and pick fruits regularly to extend the harvesting season.
