The courgette Venus F1 hybrid has succumbed to courgette and has died very quickly.

The courgette Dundoo F1 is tolerant to powdery mildew and is still looking well, & producing courgettes, although it is planted next to a Venus which is covered in mildew spores.

The Dundoo courgette plants have given huge yields of glossy, dark green courgettes. As well as being mildew tolerant it has the added advantage of a large open bush habit which makes picking easy.

Although mildew has shortened the season in the Venus courgettes, the Dundoo season continues & will be prolonged by covering it with a cloche to protect from the frost.
