Courgette tips: Sow in pots indoors from April and plant out in May; or sow direct in May. Courgettes are very cold sensitive, so cover the plants with fleece if there is a danger of frost.
For an extended harvest do two sowings, one in April and one in early June.
Courgettes are hungry and benefit from a good dose of manure or compost added to the soil before planting.
