Oh What a beaty!


Our marrow competition attracted a great deal of interest and we had some cracking entries but it was clear we needed to split the competition into two because some people grew their marrows from the free seeds we gave away in our April issue.This variety was ‘Long Green Bush’ and although you can grow a nice sized marrow from it you would not compete with some other marrow varieties.




Marrow stats: 76cm (30in) long, girth 143cm (56in). Weight: 53.9kg (8st 6lb 13oz)

Adrian said: “The biggest secret to growing a large marrow is getting a good big plant and covering the stalks/ leaders with the soil they are growing in. This allows the plants to develop a further root system at each leaf joint.”
