This reliable variety is quick to mature and will crop all summer long and with regular harvesting. The abundant, dark skinned fruits of Courgette Marrow Long Green Bush should be harvested as baby courgettes at about 10cm (4”) long for the best flavour. This heavy yielding courgette has tender skins making it ideal for cooking whole. Height: 45cm (18”). Spread: 90cm (35”).
Sow seeds in spring 1cm (½in) deep in a good seed compost. Germination usually takes 6-10 days at 24C (75F). Can also be sown where they are to crop in late spring/early summer once the soil has warmed up. Sow 3 seeds every 60cm (24in) and thin out to the best seedling.
Transplant when large enough to handle into 8cm (3in) pots and grow on in cooler conditions. Gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions for 10-15 days before planting out after all risk of frost, 60cm (24in) apart in a sunny sheltered spot on rich well drained soil.
Water regularly and feed every 14 days once the courgettes start to develop. Pick regularly while small 10-16cm (4-6in) and don't leave any on to grow large or cropping will be impaired.
