    Do you use neem oil before insects attack the plants? Can you use it on all vegetables plants?

    this is thesame thing that is happening to my cucumbes. I live in the CAribbean, its hot at this time of the year, no rain. Lots of male flowers, plant growing tall and healthy, but just two female flowers, one fell off. Added epsom salt. Lack of bees and insect too so I have to do hand pollination but then there is hardly any female flowers.

    If you take a paintbrush and brush the inside of the female buds and then touch the male plants they will bud

    Hi, I’m a subscriber and have about 5 zucchini plants that have mostly male flowers. I’m wondering is there some mineral I need to add to the soil to make more female flowers? The plants are doing fine otherwise, just not a lot of zucchini to share with my friends
    I have 2 different varieties of yellow crook necks that are doing better than the zucchini plants. the plants have more girl flowers they were planted at the same time and are planted right next to each other, well about 18 inches . the last fertilizer I used was fish emulsion, about 2 week

    Is there any other choice than using neem oil? It's expensive in my country. I'm only using soapy water ( dishwasher soap) but I 'm worry it would kill the plants if I used it too much

    aphids only attack dehydrated plants. learn biology before posing as an expert and foolishly promoting systemic pesticides. fungicides are one of the stupidest things you could add since it can kill off mycorrhizal fungi. bad fungi will only affect unhealthy tissue. grow them properly and you wont have any issues. stop spraying.

    My cukes have lots of male flowers, too! Homes Guide's website has an article on this subject. Bee attraction! The male flowers, which have sweet nectar, as well as pollen, come out, in force, 10-14 days before female flowers. The reason is to attract bees and alert their nests. When the cukes are ready to produce fruit, the female flowers appear with male flowers. The bees are buzzing and the plant is successfully pollinated. Well, okay. That gives me hope, but I'll see. If that' explanation is true, then i'll be in touch!

    Hi again, due to colder weather in Toronto in early June, some of cucumber plants died, so i bough other but some of them had 2 plant in the pot and i planted them in the ground as is.. I am afraid to split them . Both of them are doing well. My question to you, should i split them, cut one of them or keep them grow together? thanks a lot for your help. by the way i like your site.

    I have a plant w/nearly every flower has a cucumber, but they get to about 1" long, turns yellow, & dies off. I found tiny, very jumpy black bugs on them late yesterday. Looked closer & also found green 'mites'? Was going to spray, but it's supposed to rain for the next 4 days, so not sure to spray or not.

    After seeing your video on Squash, I noticed all my flowers were female & all the squash almost immediately began rotting. Why no male flowers?

    I know this video is from a few years ago but I had awesome cucumbers last year. I noticed though that i had an insect, it was small, hard bodied and didn't seem to react at all to Neem oil. It was sort of gray colored/ black. I have no clue what this was but I always found them on my plants. Neem killed just about everything and really let me have a great garden. A question on neem. I have just planted the garden. I have very small plants, how large should your plants be before you start with the neem?

    2:41 that tomato on the bottom right looks super wrong at that angle lol had to look twice to see what it was ahahaha! Anyways do you really hang your pot with the cucumber plant growing inside of it? because wouldn't it be too heavy for the pot especially when the cucumber grows?

    Your problem is the seed in the first place. Try to get better seeds that gives female self pollinated cucumbers. It's totally worth the cost

    I think the problem with your cucumbers not having enough female flowers is: too much Nitrogen. It does wonders for the foliage but limits the proper formation of female flowers.

    I wonder if your pre-fruiting spraying with neem oil in a humid environment inhibited the pollination process of that plant? Did you have other plants also sprayed that were just fine?
