BWS, don't panic

Have a read at another thread lower down the page called Poorly Courgettes and see if that helps. If not someone will come to your rescue.

Poorly Courgettes

OL as Dove says they should be outside, all of them.

You have a lot in your GH and I think some things should come out to make some space for air to circulate, especially for your toms.  

If the courgette plants are producing good sized ones and some funny little ones remove the funny little ones. They might stop the new ones developing.

I need to go to the market and make a visit, just as well it's not sunny here, drizzling or I wouldn't want to go.

Hugs Rosemummy & little Fairy..sounds like you are cooking again Fairy.

OL, HW won't do itself, but on nice days I walk around the house with my sunglasses on so I don't notice.

See you all later

OL are any growing to full size?  What are they growing in pots or in grow bags? Roughly how many are getting on each plant?  Have you fed them ? They like a tomato feed fortnightly once they are producing. When you water make sure you water at the base and don't wet the leaves and fruits.

I agree with rebecca about pinching out some of the small ones if you aren't getting any of a decent size.

OL if they hadn't been pollinated you wouldn't have a courgette. Sometimes the flowers don't drop off and start to rot, at that point I remove the flower before it rots the courgette and it would help if you put something under the courgette if the ground is wet and it is sitting on it.

I wouldn't throw that courgette away I'd cut rotten end off and eat the rest

More help needed please . . . .

Hi Fairy

Good Morning all, had some rain overnight and looking like more is due.

I've been up ages looking at last years GW mags for June / July before passing them on, won't matter they are a year old recipient will be happy to have them.

Hi Dove, same here with PM's.

Hope all have a good day.
