Green trailing marrow needs lots of space to grow as it is a trailing variety. The strong growing plants produce large fruits wich have dark green skin with paler stripes. Regarded by many gardeners as the best tasting marrow. Grows very well in the UK climate.
Sow the marrow seeds late March through April under glass for growing in the greenhouse, or late April through May to transplant outdoors. Seeds can also be sown direct outdoors, in a finely prepared bed, from late May.
Sow the marrow seeds about 2 cm deep in 7.5 cm pots of good compost or in seed cells, 1-2 seeds per pot/cell, so you can save the stronger seedling.
Transplant the seedlings into bigger pots when they are large enough to handle.
Place in a propagator before transplanting outside to acclimatise the plants to the outdoor conditions. Leave around 60 cm between the plants when planting into final position.
Pick the fruits regularly to encourage further production. One plant should produce up to 10 fruits. In order to have large fruits leave only one fruit on one plant, this variety can produce really large marrows.
