Courgettes If you like the Mediterranean cuisine, you really should plant some courgettes in your garden. Every garden has room for a few of these plants. They also do well in a pot on the patio or decking. It is recommended to presow indoors and then plant the seedlings out when they are no longer threatened by night frost. These plants are very attractive, so they will not look out of place in a flower border. Spalding has a good range to choose from.
