How to grow Zucchini plants in Terrace Gardens

Updated: Sep 10, 2021

  • Zucchini plants can be grown from young plants or seeds. When starting with seeds, they should be sown directly in the garden or in the grow bags.

  • They can also be planted together in a single container and can be transplanted to individual grow bags

  • Optimal soil temperature for germination of the seeds is 25-35°C

  • When the soil has warmed up in your grow bag, plant seeds one-half inch deep, 3 to 4 inches apart, in rows that are 2 to 3 feet apart.

  • Seeds should sprout in 7-14 days after planting them.

  • Thin plants so that they are spaced 6 to 8 inches apart once they are 4 to 5 inches tall.

  • After seedlings are grown a few inches height, Thin to one plant per spot once the seeds have sprouted and have grown their first set of true leaves.

  • Once seedlings are established, create a mulch around the plants to keep the ground temperature stable and also helps the soil retain water
