Courgette Seeds

Courgettes grown from seed in your own garden are best for taste and the environment! For maximum production of courgettes, it is essential that all fruits of a culinary size are removed three times a week whether required or not. Do not remove skins, just slice and grill, stir-fry, boil lightly, or use raw in salads. Top Tips: Choose the variety for your conditions; If mildew is a problem try Tosca because on our trials we have found it has good resistance to this fungal disease. Make sure you check the full range of Dobies to stock your garden or allotment.

How to grow Courgette from seed? 

Fed up with weedy ground? The best way to deal with it is to grow Courgettes through artificial black mulch such as Mypex. Lay it over the weedy ground, cut a cross into the Mypex and plant through. You can then apply Organic mulches on top of this.

Growing courgettes in pots and containers

Nowadays, you don’t need a garden to grow veg and you can easily grow courgettes in pots and containers if you select the right seed from the start. The F1 Defender, Courcourzelle and F1 Atena are a few ideal varieties to begin with. 

When to harvest courgettes?

We know that Courgettes grow very quickly and if they get too large, they lose flavour and become marrow like. Be sure to pick them when they are young and smaller to get the tastiest and flavoursome crops.
