I believe the ratio of Monty Don's nettle fertiliser is 10 to 1, what can i use it on?. I was going to feed my squash and cougettes also runner beans.

I have grown squash for the first time from some loose seeds given to me.  How do I know when they are ready to harvest?  At the minute they largest one measures about 5 inches from top to bottom.

Thanks in anticipation.
