Courgette Flowers

Hello, I'm completeley new to any type  of veg growing. I'm only getting my head round that courgette plants have a  flower now hear theirs male and female flowers!

ONe of my courgette has an orange colour flower, I'm assuming thats a male and it has very small courgettes growing. Will a female flower just appear? Will it look prettier? Does the plant need a male and female flowers?

We've just chucked some veg in this year so know nothing about what to expect

 

What to plant in Daffodil bed?

Maybe some forget me nots, hardy geraniums  and some other nice ground cover like bugle and londons pride, all will give you some colour around the base of the daff leaves.

Lots of healthy plants there Bev.

If it were me I would give the whole lot a good drink and try and gentle pull the roots out of each individual plant. I have found that the wet soil makes it easier to pull them apart. I would say the cornflowers can go straight in but I would be tempted to grow on the nigellas

I have bought the free Thompson and Morgan perinnals offer in the past, once I got over the shock of how small they were.........they were good plants and some have flowered in their second year, but probably wouldn't buy again because of the postage cost

scented bedding plants

I'd go for night scented stock as well, looks very insignificant in the day time but once evening comes the flowers open and the smell is beautiful. Grow them every year. Sowed some about a week ago  and they are up
