Have been growing Courgettes for a few years now but this is the first year i seen it like this, lots of male and female flowers formed and growing on each plant (maybe 6 of each) but none of the buds are opening to let them get pollinated.
Is it the lack of sunshine? i dont think there is much difference in this summer than year than last years one.

I have been growing courgettes for a long time now. This is the worst Summer that I can remember since 1947. My courgettes have just started blossoming, male flowers as is normal first. They will develop if we get some fine weather.

Thanks Michael If we ever do get the sun back it looks like all these courgettes will arrive at once lol, they seem to be forming a queue waiting for it.
More bad weather forecast for this week.
