Your question inspired the need to do research, as I had no idea what to tell you. The result is that I can be sure that soil amendments will not solve your zucchini problem. The links below are sources of information that you can use to learn more about how to change your practices and improve your zucchini. It is most likely that you should consider planting zucchini and other squash crops in a different area of your garden.
