ANNE MARIE’S TOP GROW­ING TIPS

Country Living (UK) - - Food & Drink -

Har­vest win­ter squashes un­til the plant has with­ered or a good frost is fore­cast. Place in a green­house, cold frame or on a win­dowsill to cure. This way, they will de­velop an in­tense yet sweet flavour.

Use well-rot­ted ma­nure or home­made com­post. You may get prob­lems from other forms of soil im­prover.

In au­tumn, make the spac­ings be­tween plants a lit­tle wider to al­low bet­ter air­flow and avoid mildew.
