Just looking at the graph depicting the brst times to grow marrow. Looks like I sow'd and planted early. *Why is it important to sow and plant at the right time? Thankyou in advance.

To sow around the best time is to give yourself the best chance to produce a good crop. Like you wouldn't plant something in summer if it says to plant in winter.

Mike, thanks for the reminder. I have read and occasionally reread the above.Invaluable. One of my marrow fruit turned yellow (had something at the flower end that looked like blossom-end rot that tomatoes can get) and came off while some of my leaves (Melbourne cream, Winter Squash Blue Hubbard) have small white spotty blotches on them . I cut them off and disposed of them in sealed zip bags but it's disappointing. Can I treat them? Thnx in advance.
