    This zucchini plant keeps eluding me! I am yet to get a single zucchini from it and it is taking over my garden and smothering everything!

    I see my problem as this, I have PLENTY of flowers, male and female.. its just the females never flower.. instead they sit there, about 1cm long and then shrivel up and die!!

    This has become very frustrating for me, and so any help would be massively appreciated!!

    Also, whlst I am posting, I should also post about my trouble with growing eggplants, I have succesfully grown one eggplant (by accident!) and now all my flowers dry out and die...
    I read up on it and tried hand pollination with a paint brush, but that seems not to be working either! So right now I'm on the verge of giving up! I did read that eggplants are wind pollinated... but we have had alot of wind... so right now very clueless... and garden guru please please please share your wisdom with me!
