I have planted 2 zucchini seeds close to each other and about 60 to 80 cm further on another 2 seeds close together.( as they say to plant 2 or 3 seeds in a clump and then keep only the healthiest one) Well , 2 came up so healthy ,right next to each other, and I don't want to pull out one and throw it away...can I re plant it or just leave it there (about 3 or 4 weeks old) The other 2 don't look as healthy,(not sure why that is .)

It might be a bit late to transplant now - you will really set it back by transplanting it. Next time don't plant them so close. When you transplant always try and have soil around the roots. Leave it there but keep the water up and maybe a touch of fert in a couple of weeks.
