Courgette Problems

United Kingdom Gb

Why do my courgettes keep half growing and then turning rotten on the plant, is it the wet weather?



No your leaving them on the plant to long -- You'll need to be vigilant once the young fruits start to develop, as they can grow to harvest size within a couple of days.

Pick them regularly and they'll crop for most of the season. The flowers can also be stuffed as an attractive gourmet treat.
