Zucchini blossoms getting a black mold
After the blossom has bloomed, they close up and have a fuzzy black mold. I have removed the blossoms. Do I need to spray them? I have yet to have any fruit. I even tried to self pollinate them using a q-tip. Help me please.

It does appear to be a moldy fungus on the flowers.
This is likely due to damp conditions in the garden.
Neem Oil would be a good treatment. It is safe for people, pets and bees.
