i have grown butternuts for the first time this year and have five fruits, not brilliant but next year i will make sure they are pollinated I grew one plant in the greenhouse and used comfrey feed 

I have used a wormery i had given to make the food, just filled each layer with chopped up leaves and put a bottle under the open tap to collect the feed, no smell at all they just dissolved into a slimey mess and i kept adding more
