Courgettes

United Kingdom Gb

I have 6 courgette plants which have been covered in flowers and yet have not produced any courgettes.
Can anyone tell me what has gone wrong?

Have the flowers got tiny fruits at the back of them? If not, they are male flowers. Probably not setting fruit in this cool weather, try to encourage them with tomato food.

Thye're in the open garden,

But I guess as the other reply said that they may not have got fertilised?

Thanks for your reply, I have tried tomato fertiliser, but think I may have left it a bit too late? Most of my friends seem to have had fantastic crops of courgettes so maybe my soil needs more feeding?
