Demeter Courgette Seeds - Zucchini Elite
A non-trailing courgette, with glossy medium green fruits which are at their most delicious when picked small. You can also eat the flowers.

Info & Care
Sowing: Sow from April indoors at min. 20ºc. Sow the seeds in seed trays and transfer the seedlings into pots or sow directly into pots.
Growing instructions: Courgettes grow best in a warm sunny place. They can grow outside or in a cold-frame. Harden the plants off slowly and plant outside after the last frost. One plant per m². Courgettes will benefit from the addition of some well rotted manure prior to planting. Regular watering with a weekly tomato based feed will encourage more fruits. Harvest when the fruits are about 15cm in length - they can be left to grow bigger but for the best flavour do not allow them to grow into marrows.
