Fast-growing, highly productive courgettes like 'Orella' are easily grown from seed in spring, and shoot up quickly in a windowsill pot. Move into a larger size pot, and then harden off outside through May, bringing them under cover on cold nights. Plant out in June, having added plenty of organic matter to the soil, but beware slugs. Water well in dry spells, and pick the yellow fruit when about 10cm long. If left too long the courgettes swell up, become marrows, lose flavour, and the plant becomes less productive. The tasty, edible flowers can be used in salads, etc.
