The Miracle-Gro® Gro-ables® Courgette Seed Pod™ is biodegradable, which means the roots can grow freely through and get established in the surrounding soil.  The outer shell also helps protect the seed by retaining moisture and contains a 6 month controlled release feed, that provides the nutrients it needs to help establish strong roots and the strength to germinate.

How to Plant Courgette Gro-ables

Do not plant outside until risk of frost has passed. For an earlier harvest, start growing indoors 6-8 weeks before transplanting.

  1. Remove the lid completely.
  2. Choose a sunny spot.
  3. Simply push the seed pod into loosened soil or compost (growing bag or large pot filled with Miracle-Gro Enriched Compost) until the pod is level with the soil surface. DO NOT cover, the seeds are at just the right depth to grow.
  4. Space seed pods 30cm apart.
  5. Water daily.
  6. If more than one seed germinates remove all but one when they reach 5cm tall.
  7. Feed every 7-14 days with Miracle-Gro® Gro Your Own Vegetable & Fruit Concentrated Liquid Plant Food when fruits are visible and foliage color fades.

What to Expect When Growing Courgettes

Courgette Gro-ables® germinate in about 10 days.

Typically, you can begin harvesting after 55 days of growth.

How to Get a Better Crop of Courgettes

Harvest when they are young, about 4-5inches long, this will ensure a long cropping period.

Use a small planting pot to pour feed and water into, place the pot with the hole end gently pushed into the soil/compost.  Fill the pot up with the water/feed and this will slowly distribute the water through the soil/compost down to the roots and means it will not run off the top and get wasted.

Make sure you harden off young plants before you plant them out, do this by standing them outside in a sheltered spot during the day and bringing them in at night for at least a week.
