Hi there, thanks for the great information, I have a question if you can help please! I have planted 8 giant pumpkin plants, planted the seeds indoors about 2 months ago and planted them out a week or so ago. They are starting to shoot flowers male and femal, is it too early to let them develop, should I nip all the flowers off or leave some (or all of them) as the plants seem a little young maybe. Appreciate your advice thanks

I would not do any thinning of flowers. If you want to thin fruit as they develop to help encourage fewer and larger pumpkins, I would do that instead.
