Should I pinch back some of the flowers on my zucchini plants
Or will that hurt the other fruits? Never grown zucchini before. I put a tomato frame around it so it could grow up and not lay on the ground. It's doing really well. There are a lot of flowers and also some clusters of small leaves at the ends of several branches, but I don't know if that is a fruit or what.
I would just let your zucchini be :) Zucchini plants grow male and female flowers - once the plant becomes pollinated then fruit starts growing. I would try to pay more attention to whether or not you have pollinating insects (like bees, etc) in your garden - if not, you might need to self-pollinate your plant to help move it along for fruit bearing. Hope that helps!
