Q.

squash and zuccini

Zone Mandeville, LA 70471 | Anonymous added on June 10, 2019 | Answered

Why do I only have male plants???? I have tried to find female flowers to no avail. I am in a race to beat my local anole lizards and other interested creatures in trimming the buds. I am a failure as a sex therapist in looking to cross pollinate. There are absolutely NO female flowers to be found. My location is the deep south, north side of Lake Ponchatrain in Louisiana. The plants get midday direct sun for 1-2 hours, otherwise partial shade. Well watered. I have been trying for 3 years to no avail. Will I be more successful if I grow them in pots in fuller sun/heat???? The same small beds (8x4) successfully grow eggplants and peppers of all varieties.
