It has been great year for growing zucchini or courgettes says Adam Pasco. He’s been growing a few different varieties this summer including Zephyr, which develops a creamy-yellow skin with a green tip to each fruit and offers something different to the usual green courgettes.

Cultivation of the kitchen garden at Myddleton House in Enfield started in 2009 when the working of clearing began with cutting down of trees and clearing of pathways, pigs were then brought in to root out the unwanted. Head Gardener, Andrew Turvey explained to Ken Crowther the work that has gone into the gardens.
