10 Tips For Growing Zucchinis From Seeds

via A Healthy Life For Me

Let’s start with these Zucchini growing tips from A Healthy Life For Me. It’s important that your zucchini is planted in an area where it will receive at least 10 hours of direct sunlight daily.

The process of growing Zucchinis from seeds allows you to get a jump on the traditional growing season. When it comes to your soil, you should aim for a PH level in the 6-7 range. This will ensure a bumper crop!

You can start your seeds indoors. You keep them inside for 4-6 weeks prior to planting in your garden.

It’s important that all chances of frost have passed. Once you have successfully planted your seedlings, mulching around your plants will assist with water retention. It will also help to keep the soil stable.

These 2 key elements are very important and should not be overlooked. The last thing you want is for your crop to be negatively affected.

Another good piece of advice is to ensure that your Zucchini Plants are watered each week. 2 inches is recommended and you should also use a soaker hose.

We discovered that if you use a sprinkler, the plants may develop a powdery type of mildew. As this is not what you want, be careful to water the plants below the leaves.

On a side note, the clever gardening hack above can also be used for any vegetable in your garden. They suggest planting your seeds around an empty plastic pot for deeper root watering.

How To Control Mildew

via Pakagri

If your plants are affected by powdery spots, the leaves may turn brown. Amy of A Healthy life for Me has a great remedy for this common issue.

She suggests an organic remedy that uses Cows Milk.

Mix 1 part milk with 9 parts water and spray the stems and tops of leaves with the solution. You should also reapply after rain. Another excellent way to control the mildew is with the homemade spray recipe that we have included in the pinnable above.

She also says you can try to prevent Powdery Mildew by spraying leaves with a mixture of 1 teaspoon baking soda in 1-quart water.

This raises the pH, creating an unwelcoming environment for powdery mildew. Speaking of PH levels, Zucchinis should have a soil PH in the order of 6-7. You should also harvest when the plants are small. This will result in a more flavorful crop.

As Zucchini’s don’t hold their flavor for long, you should use them within a week of harvesting. Store them in the fridge until ready for use.
