Marrow or Pumpkin

United Kingdom Gb

My son and I planted a seed to see what would grow. I believe it is one of the above. The plant is healthy and has a number of flowers on it. However the flowers open but then fall off and no vegetable grows. Can you please help.



Have you given it lots and lots of water? if it is a marrow they like plenty of water. What are the flowers like? My courgette flowers are big yellow flowers with pointy petals. if you grow courgettes on they become marrows !!

Does the plant have very big leaves on long stems which are hollow?
