why do my courgettes start to form ok and then go yellow at the ends and drop off when still quite small?



Usually that means that they weren't pollinated, Lizzy. When they bloom, find a male flower--the ones without a baby courgette behind--and use a paintbrush or Q-Tip to transfer the pollen to a female flower. Usually bees do the honors, but bees have been in short supply, lately.
