I normally get loads of fruit from my courgette plants, this year nothing so far! I get plenty of lovely flowers but they die and fall off and no fruit. Can anyone suggest why? I think the soil id ok and they are getting plenty of water.



Lack of pollinating insects possibly, you could always try the child's paint brush trick get the pollen from one of the male flowers and tickle the female flowers with it.

Weather conditions I'd say....

Thanks for your comments Moon grower and Pamg. I will try the pollinating idea. Squigle
