Does anyone know why my courgette flowers are falling off and not producing a courgette?

because they are male flowers the female flowers produce the fruit, normally you have to wait a bit for the female flower/fruit to come along.

You can tell which ones are female by the miniature courgette they are attached to. If these ones are falling off then you may have a problem with watering/temperature/mildew etc.

Ok, thanks. Could it be that I'm watering them too much?
