The lip-like lower petal of an orchid flower, which is distinct from the others both in form and patterning. Serves as a platform for pollinating insects.
please? I suspect this is because they've not been fertilised - possibly due to a lack of male flowers or a lack of pollinating insects due to the weather. However, my courgettes are not rotting off even tho' I suspect they've not been pollinated - see
pollination group so your neighbour's trees may not be the best match. You can use Google to find the best pollinators for your tree. Also, you need insects such as bees to do the pollination so make sure you have plenty of flowering plants nearbyto attract
Poor early-summer weather, with a prolonged cold spell, and few insects results in poor pollination. This means courgettes fail to develop, and they quickly rot on the plant. However, this is only a temporary problem, and once the weather starts
a fleece on when frost is forecast and it is taken off during the day when the bees are active. I think the problem was more likely to be lack of pollinating insects because of the weather, it happens as well when there is a lot of rain at flowering
