hello, I'm growing courgettes for the first time, and although the plant is thriving and has an abundance of flowers, they just fall off and no courgettes are growing. why is this? help!!!



Your courgette flowers have not been pollenated, hence no fruits. Do this by hand using a small artists paint brush or a Q tip. Dip into the pollen of a male flower and use to fertilise the female flowers.
