Squash Trauma

We are having a total nightmare with our squash this year, and cannot work out why. Any thought great fully recieved. We grew a really nice selection of squash plants in spring;

Fearing it was something to do with our soil, we have resorted to starting a few ‘reserves’ off in grow bags as squash is a really big part of our summer produce and we are already feeling the gap.

Asks you can see from the photo, there are a couple of semi decent ones, but as yet no sign of any fruit. We are keeping them well watered but are getting close to giving up on them. 😦
