Squash-flowers but no fruit

I have a butternut squash plant in a pot in my greenhouse. It keeps producing flowers but then they never develop into squashes. Please help!

    Hi Sue many squashes produce lots of male flowers first then the female flowers come along, do any of the flowers have a lump behind them? No squashes usually means a pollination issue so if you have both male and female you could give them a helping hand  :)

    I have the greenhouse fully ventilated through the summer which lets all the pollinators in and once the plant gets going all is usually OK.
    Haven't been anywhere for over four months but I'm here and I'm mostly happy
