I appreciate I’m not that tall, but before we starting growing courgettes up stakes, I never thought a courgette could grow taller than me. But they proved me wrong!
This photo is of the British Summertime that we planted out in a container in the spring. And it’s still going! In fact, it’s got to the top of the stake we gave it now, so we’ve had to make other provisions…
This is the best we could do. We couldn’t think of a secure way to attach another stake vertically, so we attached one diagonally upwards and attached it to the fence further along.
Then we waited for the plant to grow a bit longer before gently coercing it to be tied up to its new stake. It seems to be relatively happy so far!
