Why Doesn’t My Butternut Squash Make Any Flowers

jaymk added on August 9, 2012 | Answered

I have cucumbers, zucchini, and butternut squash all planted in same area-same soil-same watering. The zucchini and cucumbers produced flowers about three weeks ago and are making fruit but the butternut squashes still haven't made any flowers, even though they were all started at the same time. Can I do anything to force flowering?

It may have too much nitrogen which can prevent flowering. You can try giving it some phosphorous rich fertilizer to offset the nitrogen.
