Zucchini likes sunshine—a lot of it!
These plants don’t mind the heat either, so placing them along a south-facing wall typically works well.
Look for pots at least 12 inches deep and 18 inches across. Large plastic storage bins work well, but you will need to drill drainage holes in the bottom.
As with most vegetables in pots, choosing a quality potting soil is vital.
This special mixture creates an airy, non-compact environment.
Start by planting a scattering of seeds, each at least four inches from the edges of your container. Place the seeds an inch below the soil surface.
Look for seedlings available in bio-pots that can be planted directly into the ground to avoid transplant shock.
