This year will be my first attempt at growing pumpkins and it this might be a silly question but how do you tell the difference between a male and female flower?

Look at the stalk behind the flower - the male stalk is the same thickness (or rather thinness) all the way along, whereas the female has a swelling behind the flower - this will  grow into the pumpkin when the female flower is fertilised.

 

No such thing as a silly question - but it would be daft not to ask
