Courgette & Cucumber Seeds

(28 items)

Courgettes come in a wide array of shapes and flavours, from gold and white varieties, to the tender and trustworthy crops that produce all the way through until Autumn. Cucumbers now come in miniature, round, and ‘long’ types, and many are resistant to the dreaded powdery mildew!

These are tender crops which need to be started – but also protected – throughout spring. They’re quite happy in a propagator if you don’t have a greenhouse available to use. We recommend using a good organic seed compost, it really does not pay to scrimp on compos. . . Show More >

Courgettes come in a wide array of shapes and flavours, from gold and white varieties, to the tender and trustworthy crops that produce all the way through until Autumn. Cucumbers now come in miniature, round, and ‘long’ types, and many are resistant to the dreaded powdery mildew!

These are tender crops which need to be started – but also protected – throughout spring. They’re quite happy in a propagator if you don’t have a greenhouse available to use. We recommend using a good organic seed compost, it really does not pay to scrimp on compost when raising plants. They can be planted out into their final position once all danger of frost has passed, usually towards the end of May. These crops will benefit from a liquid seaweed feed or compost tea, which are both excellent fertilisers. They act as tonic and will make the plants strong and more resistant to any pest or disease. Courgettes love a mulch and this will also keep humidity around the plant. Cucumbers grow well in pots and this gives you the advantage of being able to position them in a nice sunny spot.  These plants will keep on producing if picked regularly - to harvest, simply twist the base of the courgette or cucumber and you should hear a nice clean “snap”. This will also prevent infection from spreading. Both crops like rich soils and if planting in open ground, we recommend soil that has been dug in with green manure. You can also plant them through Mypex groundcover, which is especially useful on weedy ground and the black colour of the Mypex produces warmth around the plant and in the soil.  

The cucumber has been a favourite throughout human history and are even mentioned around the time of the Egyptian pharaohs, far predating the invention of chemical fertilisers!
