Growing Calendar for Courgette - Piccolo
A real dual-purpose variety, producing an abundance of nearly round, green striped courgettes, which when harvested small are of great shape for kebabs. These fruits can also be left to rapidly mature into smallround marrows which are perfect for stuffing. A neat, spine-free bush habit makes this variety easy to grow and perfect for containers.
Seeds are great. Always my best veg results with Marshall's.
Good service really quickly although last year I did complain about plants arriving to dry and shrivelled, which then all died (quite a large cost to me) and somebody did ring up but no follow up so have not re ordered plants from Marshalls. Boring as in Scotland there is not much chance of buying the same quality of plants.
Seeds have never failed veg plants are excellent! 3 chillies I bought last year have just started flowering again!
Delivery is always at the right time, and well packed
