Cultivation Advice Courgette F1 Spineless Beauty

  • A sunny spot protected from strong winds is essential.
  • The soil should be well drained and rich in humus, the more the better.
  • For an early start (late Mar)
  • place a single seed edgeways 1/2inch deep in seed compost in a 3inch pot.
  • The critical part is temperature, these need at least 65F continuous soil temperature
  • (preferably more to maximise germination rates) until germinated.
  • Keep the soil moist – water copiously around the plants, not over them.
  • Keep weed free to allow air circulation.
  • Once the plants start to fruit, feed every 14 days with a tomato type fertilizer,
  • these are greedy plants.
