Hi, this is the first year I'm growing Butternut pumpkins. I live in Tasmania near Launceston. I have lots of new leavers and the plants are spreading nicely. Can you tell me when I may get flowers please?

I haven't grow butternut but I have Kent pumpkin growing now. The vine did grow out about 1.5-2.0m before the male flowers came out, a few days/week later the female flowers should come out. Hope you have bees otherwise learn about hand pollination.
