Growing Pumpkin

19 Oct 08 Geraldine (Australia - sub-tropical climate)
Hello Pumpkin Growers I am attempting to grow pumpkin for the first time. Do I need to grow at least 2 plants? I am not sure if the plants have both male and female flowers, or are single sex? Any tips appreciated; I do realise I will have to "encourage" pollination.
