All Else is Booming. Why Won't My Pumpkins Fruit?

by Pixie
(lawson, NSW)

I have begun a small vegetable garden this year and had much success with many of my efforts, particularly a small yellow heritage tomato which has fruited continuously and prolifically for 4 months. These small yellow fruit are particularly sweet and make an easy accompaniment when cooked with basil and spring onions. (also from the garden). I have had no success whatever with the seed savers small pumpkin variety i tried to grow. Lots of flowers and leaves,but any fruit that set quickly died. Do i need a more sunny spot and should I shorten the vine to encourage more fruiting.

Beans and spinach and strawberries have been great so I am now trying onions, cabbage and cauliflower. I live in the Blue Mountains in NSW
