My courgettes were growing exceptionally well and then disaster struck. I noticed the ends of the baby courgettes started to wither and die off.
The rest of the plant is perfectly healthy so the only thing I can think of is that the wet weather meant the bees were not pollinating the flowers. Maybe I planted them out too early?
(We live near the sea and have been told the marks on the leaves are from the salt humidity)
I have now planted some more courgette seeds to see if this variety fares any better.
I left the withered courgettes on my garden workbench overnight – at least someone had a meal from them!
Does anyone have any suggestions what could have caused the baby courgettes to wither at the end?
