Mine never flowered this year. When did you start them? Indoors? Full sun outside?

I started them in the green house in February. They were small when I planted them out in the sunniest spot I have. I put a cloche over them until it got warm out. I also kept the fruit hanging. The plant wants to stay on the ground though For those who want to know about cloche. Mine are used #waterjugs https://www.diyncrafts.com/117912/home/gardening/20-garden-cloche-ideas-to-protect-your-plants-many-upcycled-ideas

That's what I was going to say. Just leave them until they rattle

Frost will be the end of them though! Protect them if you have frost warnings.

Testing my #loofa growing skills in a longer than normal summer weather pattern again. They're hanging on posts but look #trellis like
