Hello Kathleen - courgettes are easily grown from seed sown in late spring - probably May would be a safe time for you to do this - you are further north than me. You will need a bit of room as the leaves spread out quite a bit ! Some of the seed catalogues have mini veg varieties. I will have a look and get back to you.
