Hi all,
I sowed a courgette plant along with 3 tomato plants not realising how big the courgette plant would grow. Is it ok to cut off some of the leaves which are shadowing the tomato plants as seen in the picture??

Its my first year with a poly tunnel so lots of lessons are being learned!!!

Thanks

I always plant courgetts outside, and if I have"nt space I just plant them in big pot, again outdoors.This baby is going to get a lot bigger, maybe someone with more knowledge can tell you whether you can transplant or cut leaves,

Thanks,

Just shows my inexperience, I sowed it thinking I would get maybe 2 or 3 courgettes but its none stop so far. And they seem to double in size every other day. It prob would be an idea to transplant to a large container if possible. Maybe someone here can advise me?
