The courgette / zucchini plants are growing well and starting to produce lots of flowers. In years past my plants have suffered increasingly from blossom rot where the flowers fall off and don't produce fruits. Recently I read an article that recommended removing the old shrivelled-up flowers once the courgette has been pollinated, to prevent blossom end rot, especially in wet / damp weather - so I must see if this helps. I've five plants & two varieties growing:
Courgette All Green Bush.
|I'm hoping this year will be a good year for courgette harvests! Courgettes are good in stir fries, stuffed, and added to soups and casseroles. They can even be used in cakes and muffins (lots of recipes online).|
