Thank for thoughts on Zucchini Elaine. I am usually able to grow Zucs all through the winter here. Will try google. I do have nematodes, but usually find that crops grow OK if given enough nutrients, but am finding that this year after all the rain that the soil needs plenty of feeding.

On reflection probably more than just Potash.

Potash and it's a bit cold for Zucchs now although you are further north so maybe not so chilly. You get this kind of distortion in Capsicum which are short of nutrients; add compost if you have it as well.

What is wrong with my Zucchini? the leaves are far too serated & curling up, this is the second crop with this problem, the first lot died, should have planted them in a different place.  Looks like a deficiency, I've sprayed with fish & seaweed. Any ideas?

Vetiver grass helps to stabilise soil and protects it against erosion.  It can protect against pests and weeds. Vetiver is also used as animal feed. (Wiki.)
