Instructions Chevron Down Chevron Forward
Sow seed directly into garden, or for an earlier crop, start indoors 3-4 weeks early.Tips for growing giant pumpkins: Start early in a Jiffy peat pot. Once transplanted be vigilant in watering. As vine grows in, pinch off any flowers that are within 1.5-1.8m (5?-6?) of the main root so that agrowing pumpkin doesn?t pull the root out as it matures. Once you notice 2-3 pumpkins growing, pinch off new flowers. Decide which of the remaining pumpkins is the largest andpinch off the other ones. Consider putting a pallet under the pumpkin so it is easy to move lateras well as helping to prevent the bottom of the pumpkin from rotting in wetter climates.
