The Q&A Archives: Pumpkin Pollinating

Question: First off, thank you. I've spent the past 1/2 hour reading previous pumpkin questions in your library. I know now that I probably had a lot of male flowers to begin with. I've probably had blossoms now for 3 weeks, but still no signs of pumpkins. I've seen plenty of bees flying around the blossoms, so I don't think that's the problem. Do you think I should wait a little longer and let nature take its course, or should I try and self-pollinate?

Answer: You can certainly try to pollinate as it will do no harm. Good luck with your pumpkins!
