When to sow courgette seeds

Courgettes are not hardy so sow seeds under cover from mid-April.

How to grow courgette seeds

Plant a couple of courgette seeds to a pot or individually in module trays, putting the seeds on their sides to reduce the risk of rot. Put in a heated propagator or cover with a plastic bag and leave in a warm place.

Pot on when the plants have two true leaves, planting one plant to a pot in multi-purpose compost and planting them deep to encourage a good root system.

Harden off before planting out after the last frost. Choose a sunny spot and make sure the ground has been well prepared with organic matter. Keep well-watered throughout the season, removing any leaves that get mildew. Pick before courgettes become marrows.

How long does it take for courgette seeds to germinate?

Courgette seeds take between seven and 10 days to germinate.
