Yellow Courgettes

Posted: 21/07/2014 at 14:26

I'm growing yellow ones - Gold Rush - the first few of mine did this - I put it down to imperfect pollination - it seems to happen early in the season - now they're romping away and producing lots of lovely sweet yellow courgettes.

As soon as the flower has been pollinated and the flower 'collapses' and begins to rot I remove it from the end of the courgette so that the rotting flower doesn't spread to the fruit.

Hope that's helpful

Think they're more of the same.

Water them, giving them a good soaking, then the next day pot them on into new compost and remove all the brown leaves.

Within a week or so they'll be growing new leaves and flower buds and you'll have a reputation in the office as being a fantastic gardener 

Large plant needed for balcony, help appreciated!

Don't know many nurseries in London, but OH and I used to walk past  Worlds End Nursery in Chelsea and frequently took a detour inside and were very impressed by the range of plants - I guess that if you contacted them for advice they'd have something that your girlfriend would really love http://www.worldsendnurseries.com/index.php?route=product/category&path=59 

Good luck

At the moment, when I cut a couple of lettuces for supper I chop up the outside leaves and put them in a heap on the edge of the purple sprouting broccoli bed - the slugs seem to prefer the lettuce to the broccoli .............. so far

If it's not been treated with a Moss Killer then pop it somewhere dry, and in the spring bundle it up or put it in a wire mesh cage like you get to put bird fat cakes in and hang in your garden in the very early spring  - the birds will come and get it to build their nests
