Reviewed 23rd February 2018 by Petra

The seeds germinated well and I grew them in pots. I collected them while small and tender which were lovely to eat and just enough to cope to consume. The collection provided the variety which looks great on a plate.

Lots of beautiful courgettes for four months...

Reviewed 20th February 2018 by Sarah Jones

I soaked these before sowing and put them in a warm room until they germinated which they all did nicely. I then kept the seedlings inside in a cool, light place until they formed healthy young plants and it was warm enough to plant them out.

We had the first courgettes in July (not bad for an elevated part of Derbyshire) and they kept coming until October! So beautiful and delicate compared to shop bought ones especially if you pick them small. We had a lot in risotto and shallow fried a few tempura style with the flowers stuffed with cheese and olives. So good!
