Q.My Pumpkin Has Only Produced Male Flowers
I know that I am most probably being impatient, but will my pumpkin plant produce any female flowers? It’s produced about three male flowers so far and no female ones. And by the looks of things it seems as if none are on the horizon either. What should I do? Will they ever arrive? Any info would be gratefully received, even if it’s just to tell me to stop being so impatient.

It is just a waiting game. Plants will produce many male flowers early on to make sure that when the female flowers do appear, that there will be plenty of pollen for them. Normally, once male flowers appear, you can expect female flowers within about 1-2 weeks.
Thank you, Heather. Now that I know that, I can wait excitedly.
