should l take off male flowers on a cougette plant if there are a lot more than female?



No I think they will be fine, the plant will produce what it will and you will get courgettes! Let it do it's thing :))

I used to do that when we grew veggies. They are edible too....steam them perhaps. The plant then puts energy into the courgette. Not too quick though, as with less bees around, they may not be fertilised.....say leave one on.
