Vegetables

Zucchini 'Lebanese'

Abundant clusters of plump tear-shaped fruits. Sweet flavoured, easy and quick to grow. Great addition to casseroles and salads.

Position

Full sun.

Sow

3 or 4 seeds into clumps of moist soil. Thin out to two plants per clump. Clumps should be topped with saucer-shaped depressions so that water is directed to plant roots.

Care

Plant in a sunny, well-prepared bed with added compost or organic matter plus Thrive Granular All Purpose Fertiliser. After flowering begins, scatter additional Thrive Granular All Purpose Fertiliser around the base of the plants and repeat every 4-5 weeks while plants are bearing. Pick fruit when small and tender. Protect from snails with Yates Blitzem.
