do we cut the male flower off

Asked from the GoYpedia courgettes page



What I do is cut the male flower, peel the petals back, and pollenate the females on other plants just in case the bees don't do it. They only last a day, and this ensures pollenization happens.

That's what I would do too.

Otherwise, not really necessary to cut them--they fall off naturally once they fade.

How do I say thanks?
