    It's likely that the female courgette flower hasn't been pollinated - do you have plenty of pollinating insects around your garden in the summer?

    This is a common experience, especially early season.

    If you put courgettes in the search box, I'm sure there will be past threads where this has been discussed.

  • Isnt there something when the flower gets wet - doesn't dry out and rots? I'm sure I've heard this on GQT.
