This article will help you with that: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/squash/squash-blossom-end-rot-causes-and-treatment.htm

Egg shells steeped in water are a good source of calcium. You can also spray your plants with a solution of 1/2 to 1 ounce of calcium chloride or calcium nitrate to one gallon of water.
