Big Max - Great Plants, No Pumpkins.
I have some impressive big max plants that have been in bloom for over a month. Every morning the blossoms are buzzing with bees and I've actually watched them to be sure they're pollinating the blossom. So far, not a single pumplin has resulted. The exact same problem happened in Northern Texas before I moved to Northern California. I need help.
The plants are in large plastic half barrels with good drainage. The barrels were filled with potting soil and I've been using Miracle Grow on the plants on a regular basis. The plants are very impressive, but I don't have even one pumpkin on any of the vines. Can somebody please help? I'm trying to make square pumpkins. I've fabricated some boxes for this purpose out of polycarbonate sheets and rolled bar stock retaining clamps. I'd love to have some pumpkins for halloween. Please help.
