Growing Marrow Bush Baby from Seeds

Marrows belong to the same family of vegetables as squashes and pumpkins. From seed to harvesting, you can plant and start picking in as little as 9 weeks. Marrow plants are prolific and will grow in abundance almost anywhere - chances are you will end up giving away many of the vegetables to family and friends because you will have more than you care to eat.

  • We recommend sowing into pots and then planting out after the risk of frost has past. Fill a 9 cm pot with good compost and place the seed approx. 1cm deep, water and place then pot in warm position.
  • After a week you should see the first leaves emerging. Move to a light but frost free position and grow on until big enough to plant out.
  • Before planting hoe the garden patch to loosen and aerate the soil. Once planted water in well, then water again every other day until the plants are established.
  • Avoid using too much fertilizer, Marrows are so robust that over fertilizing the plants could cause them to take over your garden, whilst producing only a few fruits.
  • Prune the plants once the vegetables begin to develop. Remove offshoots from the main vines and some of the leaves to let in more sunlight. This diverts plant energy to the developing vegetables.
  • Marrows are best harvested when they are about 30cm long and still tender.
  • The main problem you may encounter is mildew - usually from September onwards.
