Growing zucchini plants

I am getting very few flowers on my zucchini; therefore, no zucchini. What do I need to add to the soil, or what is wrong?

You can add some bone meal to the soil to help encourage additional flowering. Here is more information: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/garden-how-to/soil-fertilizers/bone-meal-fertilizer.htm

Also, if you are getting mostly male flowers right now, this is normal. Given a little time and patience the plant should eventually begin forming female blooms, which produce fruit.
