Hi

I Have this Zucchini plant and its producing mainly male flowers.

What can I do to have more females flowers and fruits pls?

Do I need to do pollination myself?

Thanks

Squash plants tend to produce loads of male flowers early in the season, sometimes well before the first females start to show up. So hang in there and be patient and you will have females flower very soon.

Locate freshly opened male and female flowers. Touch or roll the pollen from the male flower onto the stigma in the center of the female flower.
NOT A EXPERT! Just a grow worm! I never met a plant I didn’t love.✌
