    Default Looking for pumpkins

    Hi I'm looking for allotments in Pendle prefferably near Burnley and Colne in the hope of finding someone who is growing pumpkins. I have a pumpkin vine with female flowers but no male flowers to pollenate them.

    Thank you
    Victoria

    Hello & welcome

    Unless you want to save seeds,you can use pollen from any squash,courgette,marrow to pollinate your pumpkins

    Easiest way to do it,find a male flower with open petals,snap stem off at stalk,take to female flower,remove petals from male flower & hey presto instant applicator
