Similarly, it is asked, can you grow courgettes in pots?
You can also grow courgettes, marrows and summer squashes in growing bags or containers (at least 45cm/18in wide). Plant one or two per growbag, or one per container. These will need regular watering as they mature.
Likewise, how often should you water courgette plants? In theory, you want about one plant per adult. Once the plants are well established, you shouldn't need to water them more than once a week, taking care not to wet the plant itself. The first courgettes could be ready just eight weeks after sowing.
Beside this, how do you take care of courgette plants?
- Courgettes need plenty of water, but take care always to water at the base of the plant only or they'll rot.
- Keeping the soil permanently just moist is ideal.
- The large fleshy flowers can be eaten, but fewer courgettes will develop if you harvest too many.
Can you over water courgettes?
Courgettes will also be fine in an unheated greenhouse or poly tunnel but you must cover them with fleece at night to protect them from possible frost damage. Keep the compost reasonably moist but don't over water while the seed is germinating.
