Zucchini are heavy feeders. They adore the full sun and rich soil. Plant in a well-drained soil that has been amended with lots of organic compost.

Add organic fertilizer following package directions to the soil. Then plant or sow seed after the last frost in your garden zone at least 4 feet apart.

The plants get quite large. Colder temperature planting (below 65 degrees F) will either wilt the vegetative baby plant or prevent seed germination.

Fertilize Vegetables Organically

Because they feed heavily, it is helpful to organically fertilize the plant several times during the season, particularly if you see the leaves turning a light shade of green. Additionally, squash can be sensitive to powdery mildew, so do not water the plant from the top.

Water zucchini plants at the base of the plant; drip lines truly save your work, prevent blossom end rot, and help the plant by providing water and keeping the top leaves dry.
