Do the Flower Buds Need Shade or Sun to Bloom on a Squash Plant

Zone ?6000' elevation | ardynne added on August 27, 2011 | Answered

The flower buds on my squash plants are shaded by the leaves, and I thought I should prune the leaves for the buds to get sun, but wonder if they are shaded for a reason. Also, when I prune the leaves, do I leave the stem on or cut to the body of the plant? Thank you. Ardynne
