Description

EXHIBITION.

Long Green Bush 4 has all the attributes of Green Trailing but with a bush habit for more limited space. This variety produces large green fruits with a paler green stripe and is highly productive.
Marrows can be cut before the first frost and stored in a frost free but cool area and used during the winter. However, unlike courgette the skin is tough and is either removed before cooking or just after. Raise and grow as courgettes.

WHEN TO SOW

April to May under glass or May to June outdoors.

WHERE TO SOW

Sow seed on edge 1.5cm (1/2″”) deep to prevent rotting in pots during April to May 2.5cm (1″”) apart under glass at 20°C (68°F) using good quality seed sowing compost. Sow outdoors mid-May to June direct into growing site 1.5cm (1/2″”) deep 2 to 3 seeds in each position 60cm (24″”) apart.

WHAT TO DO NEXT

Greenhouse sowings should be gradually hardened off once they have developed the first pair of rough leaves and transplanted to growing site in late-May to early-June 60cm (24″”) apart. Outdoor sowings should be thinned to one plant per station. ”

MATURITY

July to October

HANDY TIP

Marrows and courgettes prefer a deep humus soil for both the goodness and its water retention qualities.

NUTRITIONAL VALUES

A good source of Vitamins A, C and E.
