Growing Pumpkin

03 Jan 09 Brett (Australia - temperate climate)
We are not getting any female flowers at all on our butternut pumpkin vines. Does anyone have any clues? Last year was the same - not one pumpkin! Others we spoke to in our area had the same problem last year and we put it down to excessive heat, but this year has been much cooler so that debunks that theory.
