Sow seeds singly 2.5cm (1") deep into 7.5cm (3") pots indoors or in a greenhouse at 18-25°C (64-77°F). Grow on and plant out in the garden after hardening off, when the risk of frost has passed leaving 60cm (24") each way between plants. Alternatively plant in 45cm (18") containers. Can also be sown directly outdoors into warm, well-drained, moist soil after the risk of frost has passed, sowing 2-3 seeds at 60cm (24") intervals and thinning out to the strongest seedling.
Ideal for beds and borders, patio pots and containers, raised beds. Attractive to bees. Prefers full sun. Courgette flowers are delicious stuffed and deep-fried, a perfect gourmet treat.
