There is not anything you can really do to make more female flowers. I think the only reasonable piece of advice I have heard that might work is to be diligent about removing male blossoms (though they normally drop off themselves) in the early season (they can be cooked too and are considered a delicacy). This, in theory, encourages more blooming and more chances for female blooms.
