Hi, my Courgettes seem to have a bad dose of white mould on the leaves. It seems to affect 2-3 leaves on each plant. The fruit seems to be fine. I grew the Courgettes from seed, had them in the sun room for a while and then transplanted early May. I haven't used any chemicals or feeds. Does anyone know what I should do? Do I need to destroy them or are the fruits safe to eat? Would appreciate any advice.

Probably powdery mildew. A pretty benign disease for courgettes.

Don't worry about it. All mine get this every year. It doesn't affect the fruit. Keep eating while the fruit is young. Don't let them grow >20cm. For a Med veg they grow surprisingly well in NWEurope. They like the rain.
