Female Flowers Dying on Pumpkins!
I have 3 Pumpkin plants. Hundreds of Male flowers very few female flowers. Each one of the females opens early in the morning, then closes them late morning, then the little pumpkin turns yellow and dies.
My goal was to have a pumpkin by end of October but I see that isn't going to happen now. I wonder if I'll have any at all!
My question is: Why are they dying off? I tried to self pollinate them but that didn't work either.
I planted the seed in Feb, then outside in April and the plants are very helthy. Big green leaves and about 15ft sprawled on the ground.
