Courgette plants that split

Despite my almost-best efforts of keeping the courgette plants watered I clearly didn’t quite manage to give them enough as two of them have gained slight splits in the stem

The splits are bad as it means the plant is compromised so it won’t produce as well as a healthy plant and it stands a good chance of dying early

After some internet searching there seems to be a theory that covering the split with soil may help; so I’ve done that and will keep my fingers crossed that it helps!
