Courgette: Tristan F1 Hybrid by Thompson and Morgan seeds. Courgette Tristan is a 'scratch free' variety with vastly reduced spines on the stems, and a more open plant habit, so allowing for easier harvesting. Courgette Tristan produces a heavy crop of dark green, succulent tasty courgettes throughout the summer if cut regularly. Prefers well-drained, moist, rich soil in full sun. A good source of vitamins A, C, E and folate.
Sow April to May. Sow seeds 1cm deep in 7.5cm (3in) pots of free-draining compost. Place in a propagator or seal container inside a polythene bag and place at 20-25C (68-77F) until after germination which takes 7-10 days. Do not exclude light as this helps germination. Can also be sown direct outdoors once the soil has warmed. Sow 2 seeds every 60cm (24in) and thin out to the best seedling.
Gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions for 10-15 days before planting out after all risk of frost, 60cm (24in) apart.
Water regularly and feed every 14 days once the courgettes start to develop. Pick regularly while small 10-16cm (4 to 6 inches) and don't leave any on to grow large or cropping will be impaired.
