Hello, I planted two plants of courgette two months ago. They were fine since 2 weeks ago and then they started to "die". I haven't change the quantity of water I use to give them. They were exposed to NW and then I changed the position because they couldn't have enough light and now they are towards SE. Can you help me?! I don't understand why! Thank you!!

These plants need to either be planted in the ground, or in much larger pots. They probably are root-bound, and have a lack of nutrients. It is also hard to keep them properly watered this way.
Here is a page on this vegetable (we call summer squash):

Thank you very much I will try to save them ;)
