Courgettes. I have several plants that appear to be strong and healthy but are producing a very little crop. Some of the flower stalks seem to die off rather than bearing courgettes. They are in a good deep well mucked bed and kept amply watered. What am I doing wrong? Apart from the courgettes and indoor tomatoes the rest of the vegetable patch is good!



The fruit free stalks are male flowers.
Courgettes like to be kept rather short of nutrients to crop well, in my experience. Our 1 plant produces 2 fruits every other day !

Ok , I thought they would appreciate a well mucked plot! Thanks
