On the 9th of August it was time to start off a couple of Zucchini plants they type is Nitro F1 from Lambley nursery. I am not bothering with seed starting trays as zucchinis are big seedlings and will need repotting on quickly this way it is one pot all the way. I only need one plant for now but it is always best to plant two.

On opening the packet I found that the seed was coated yellow, I also noticed that one of the seeds had a chip out of it but on counting there were 11 instead of 10 I am impressed with the nursery that I have bought the seeds from some places would have counted the chipped one.

I planted the seed in normal potting soil and made sure to plant them on the side. I have read that this makes germination better we shall see.
