Does anyone grow courgettes in planters on the patio? We used to grow them in the ground and I'm wary of the effect of wind blowing them over with the big leaves. But they are so decorative and we buy a lot of them. Similarly, there are a lot of pepper plants around - again something we buy and eat large quantities of - does anyone have any success growing them in pots on the patio or do they need the shelter of a greenhouse?
Maybe I should add that we garden totally organically and so any tips regarding fending off slugs and snails really appreciated - we have just bought the copper tape for my clematis pots so I'll see how that goes and let you know.
Welcome all the newbies and good luck all for the new month,
