Keep pick­ing cour­gettes

Garden News (UK) - - What To Do This Week -

For many peo­ple it has been a re­ally good year for cour­gettes and they’ve pro­duced large amounts of fruits. If plants are still healthy and grow­ing they should con­tinue to flower and fruit for a few more weeks yet, so you can en­joy the last of the sum­mer pro­duce, ei­ther fresh or used to make chut­neys or rata­touille. Keep har­vest­ing cour­gettes while they’re young and ten­der and in dry weather, wa­ter and feed around the roots. Male flow­ers, with a slen­der stalk in­stead of an em­bryo fruit, can also be re­moved.
