Planting out courgette

Started off my courgettes, approx 6-8 inch tall/wide. Can I plant these out now? Night temps here of 7 regular now.

    Don't know where you are, but we can still have frost. We had a frost on Friday/Saturday night.

    Still too chilly here in Norfolk!  Brrrrrrrrr!!!  Hedgehogs aren't awake yet.

    Pot them on and give them plenty of light - you could put them outside in a sheltered spot on fine days, but bring them in before the sun goes down.

  • Mine aren't even sown......I must get that done this weeknd image It was my first year growing them last year and they did really will.

  • yeah not even sown mine either, looking at my sowing plan i have them penciled in for sowing late april, early may here in the north east. Even then that would be sown in my greenhouse and probably planted out end may.

    hi there! bit early i reckon to plant out; suggest you put plants on top of kitchen cupboards near window if poss - max heat and some sun exposure for a couple of weeks, and space to spread outwards. nippy nights here in scotland still!

    I sow end of April under glass, to plant out end of May.

  • If they are 6_8" I would pot on into buckets and keep in cold greenhouse untill May. That will check them a little imagebut then I grow mine in buckets on raised bed
