Plot Type:Outdoor plot
Where To Sow: An ideal preparation is to dig out a whole 1 spades depth, and half fill with well rotted compost or even grass cuttings, and then refill with top soil. Each plant needs to be at least 1m from itís nearest neighbour. Seeds can be sown outside at the expected date of the last frost. Sow seeds 2cm deep.
What To Do Next: Protect succulent young growth from slugs and snails and continue to water regularly. Plenty of water is essential, particularly once the plants are in flower and then when the fruits have started to swell.
Handy Tip: Courgette Ambassador is happiest when grown on a compost heap. This tells you that when grown in the open , it prefers loose, well drained soil, that has been well dug over. Soil needs to be well manured the previous autumn (more so than with other vegetables).
Nutritional Value: A good source of pro-vitamin A and vitamin C & E and folic acid.
