Can you help me with my pumpkins? They grow well, but only produce male flowers, therefore no pumpkins. What am I doing wrong?

Go to garden department look for fertilizer that says something re producing flowers, and try that. (12/17/2009)
We had the same problem, the flowers were not being fertilized, you can either run around each morn with a art paint brush and fert' them yourself or as we did, attracted the bees to them. AS bees are attracted to blue and not the smell, we bought a couple of BIG blue silk flowers from the bargain store and placed amongst the vine. It works, also put them in veggie patch. (12/17/2009)
