Hi I'm hoping someone on here is a bit of a wizard when it comes to growing pumpkins.
I tried growing to varieties last year and although they grew an amazing set of leaves, every time I thought a female flower had set it expanded for a week then stopped and rotted off. I even tried artificial pollination too but again the same results, much to the disappointment of the children
An ideas how to successfully solve this problem. Incidently I grew some marrows too I managed to harvest one decent marrow but the rest failed like the pumpkins.
