Do Courgettes grow well in a tub or trough? Ive never grown them before this year and would like to try them in preferably a trough. If so, what do I do? Ive got 3 small plants.
my perennial Geraniums seem to be taller than ever this year and are getting rather floppy. When do I cut them back and down to what height?
Thanx so much - in anticipation of a reply!



the geraniums first, I always cut back after flowering and am usually lucky enough to get a second flush,
as to the courgettes I've two in a small trough ( about 2 ft long) I'm hoping if I keep them fed , watered and regularly picked the'll be ok, mine are a bush variety supposed to work well in tubs--- will wait and see--
