As Bee Populations Shrink, You Might Need To Give Your Squash Plants A Helping Hand With Pollination

The best time of day to pollinate your squash is mid-morning because the blossoms will have just opened up. Pick a male flower and remove its petals to expose the stamen fully.

To apply the pollen to the female’s stigma, gently brush the stamen against the stigma, leaving a bit of pollen inside it.

One male flower can pollinate about five female blossoms.

As you can see, self-pollinating is really quite simple.

Now, your garden will be teeming with squash!
