Propagation Month, Day 18: Direct-Seeding Zucchini

An easy task for today: I planted zucchini seeds in four spots in my flower garden. This hybrid variety from Burpee is supposed to produce high-yielding but compact, bush-like plants in about 50 days from seeding to harvest. Zucchini are one of my favorite vegetables and I love that they are so versatile you can even bake desserts with them. Four plants should give me plenty to eat, with some more to freeze and give away.

  1. How did your zucchini turn out? I know some people who have had a tough time with it recently.

  2. This post was from several years ago and if memory serves, the zucchini did fine. I'm growing it again this year in a self-watering container. So far so good!
