Growing courgettes in pots is a convenient way to have them at home all the year round, no matter the season. Getting your own “greenhouse” full of deliciously juicy and sweet courgettes is easy with a bit of effort and tolerance for imperfection on your part.
If you are unsure about how to plant courgettes in pots, you will need to follow these simple steps. First, you need to make sure that you have a good potting soil. You should be able to find a mix that suits your needs. A pot that is enriched with organic matter will improve the soil’s nutritional value. After this, you should add a few drops of liquid fertilizer once a week until the plants reach a height of 2cm.
Once the seeds have sown, you need to transplant them into a pot of at least 25 cm in diameter. You can also use grow bags, but you should always use a pot that can fit two plants. Ensure that the soil is rich with organic matter. Then, you need to re-pot the plant every month. In addition, you can store the pot in your refrigerator if the weather is cold.
You can plant one or more courgette seeds in each pot. The seeds should be planted about 1/2 inch deep in each pot and watered well. It is best to plant these seeds indoors on a warm windowsill or in a propagator. If you can’t wait for the plants to grow outdoors, you can grow them in a poly tunnel or unheated greenhouse. Just make sure to cover the pots with a fleece over night, and keep them moist.
