I am growing Butternut Pumpkins and am finding that a lot of the pumpkins are going soft and falling off when they are just starting to form , now I dont know if I am under or over watering

the pumpkin has not been fertilised may be lack of bees so fertilise by stripping the male flower and dabbing it into the female flower and you get very good results with this method
