courgettes day 21


courgettes day 21, originally uploaded by the pig wot flies.

They've got big leaves and they're dark green, fleshy and slightly fluffy like proper grown-up courgette plants.

I planted 4 seeds in each side. On the right hand side, they all came up, on the left, only one did. I suspect this was because I didn't shake the grow-bag thoroughly enough at the beginnning and the soil was more compacted at the left hand end. I suppose I should thin out the plants a bit. The question is when and by how much?

I think you should probaby only leave 1 each side
Can you save the others orplant them somewhere else just in case

I've never seen such a thing as a grow bag! Is it just a bag of soil?

Hi Mary. Yes, basically. I suppose they're a feature of small British gardens because they're useful for extra growing space and cheaper than buying a pretty pot.

What I've not yet work out is what to do with said grow bag once the plants are dead. Use it again? Dig it into the rest of the garden?
