The bush-type courgettes didn't stay as a bush but trailed just like the other types, nevertheless they have cropped well even with the dry summer. Then there is the Gold Rush courgette which out-performs itself every year - I am not as keen on the yellow courgettes, they don't have much taste, but they just look so stunning and crop far more heavily than the green types. Again, next year, two plants instead of three.
The only ones from this family that haven't done very well for me are the Butternut squashes - I have only had four or five squashes develop and they aren't anywhere near as big as they were last year - you can't win 'em all.
