Hi there, new to the forum so hello!!
Right, i'm not a real gardener infact i hate gardening full stop, ive
even put blue slate chips down where the grass was so i do not need to
cut the grass anymore.
But, i have a little bit of soil space against my fence which is about
3 foot by 10 foot, and I use this space every year to grow things so i
can sit in the back garden on a summers evening and watch what ive
planted. I make lots of home brew ales, and while i sit in the garden
on an evening i have a few pints and just take in the bits and bobs i
have grown through the summer months, these are just the usual stuff a
few onions, cabbage, peas, and potatoes etc (not in the same year i try
to grow different things each year)
Right, This year I put in a few pumpkin seeds, they grew really nice
and lovely yellow flowers appeared dropped off, and then nothing, after
they had been pollinated i expected the flowers to fall and a pumpkin
appear from somewhere, and grow.
nothing has happened at all, but where the flowers where the stalks
have swollen like little broadbean shaped things.
here are a couple of pics hopefully you can see them but they are from
a mobile phone so not great quality.
any advice on what went wrong, or why no pumpkins came please.
