Sowing Indoors

  • Sow seeds individually on edge in small pots of moist seed compost 2cm (1in) deep
  • Place in warmth 15-18C (60-65F) and cover the pots with cling film until seedlings emerge. Grow on under cool, light conditions, but not in bright sun

Sowing Outdoors

  • Water sowing positions, then sow two or three seeds close together in a group 2cm (1in) deep. Allow 90cm (36in) between groups
  • After germination, leave only the strongest seedling in each group

 

Hardening Off/Planting Out

  • Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions for 2-3 weeks before planting out to their cropping positions when danger of frost has passed. Allow about 90cm (36in) between plants.

 

Aftercare

  • Pumpkins are thirsty and hungry plants. Water them freely and frequently, especially during dry spells. Once fruit starts to swell, feed plants regularly with a liquid fertiliser.

Harvest

  • September
