Courgettes

We had some delicious courgettes this year from our plant - the season is obviously over and the courgette has started to get mew growth. What should I do - will it survive in the drug to next year?

  • as long as we don't get frosts the plant will continue on, however the fruit only sets when the temperature is high enough

    Mine are done, and I guess they won't flower again.

    Thanks. I won't yank them, and leave them till next year, covering them over the winter to prevent the frost from getting them.

  • even with covers the frost will still get them, your best bet is wait till the frost kills them and then remove them
