My courgette leaves have gone crispy!

Cornwall, United Kingdom Gb

I have 2 courgettes growing in an open growbag in a wooden tray. One was bought as a small plant - a yellow one - & the other grown in the bag from seed. The leaves on the yellow one are going brown at the edges & have yellow & brown patches, but it has plenty of healthy courgettes growing. The other (smaller) plant is fine. I water them every day & feed once a week with liquid seaweed. Is this just sunscorch? They are against a low wall & it gets sun all day. Is there anything I can or should be doing?



If they are in a grow bag and in full sun, they probably need watering twice a day.
The damage sounds like heat+lack of water.

Try a 'lot' more water if your courgettes are sitting in a grow bag in full sun then their roots are being baked you will need to water at very frequent well at least twice a day
