Courgette variety Tristan
A heavy-cropping variety with good flower and fruit development. Consistent large fruit size. Best taste once they get to around 20cm in length. Open plant habit which makes it easier for harvesting. Lovely flavoursome variety.
Your cucumber plants will have been grown indoors with artificial heat and light to make sure they are as healthy as possible for you. This does however mean that you shouldn't put them straight outside when it's too cold. The general rule of thumb is to start putting your cucumber plants outside for a few hours a day from the middle of April to acclimatise them (bring them in if a late frost looks likely). If your lucky enough to have your own greenhouse you can start planting a couple of weeks earlier, and if it is heated, even earlier. Regular feeding is best for courgettes as they are hungry plants and grow quickly.
