  • Planting Instructions

    Pumpkin Planting info:

    Plant your pumpkin seeds outside after all chance of frost has passed and the soil temperature is 65 F. Even though pumpkins need a lot of room to grow, we always plant more pumpkin seeds than we think we may need to increase the chance of each vine setting fruit. Plan on needing a minimum of 20 square feet for each plant – this can be found on the edge of the garden where the vines can trail down, or in an unconventional spot in your yard that has ample space.

    The warmer the soil, the faster the seeds will germinate, so mound the soil to help the sun heat it faster. Plant 3-5 pumpkin seeds about 1 inch deep in each mound. Once they germinate, thin to 2 of the healthiest sprouts.

    Pumpkins are 80-90% water, so they need a lot of it to grow. The secret is to only water pumpkins when they need it. If the plant looks healthy, there is no need to water daily. When the soil is dry and the plant looks limp, give it a long deep drink. Deep but infrequent watering results in a healthier plant.

    Most pumpkin varieties take between 85-125 days to mature. If you would like to have pumpkins on October 1st, count backwards to decide when to plant.

Howden Field Pumpkin Seeds

These seeds were everything we hoped for - excellent spouting ratio - their growth has been awesome - as far as production that will have to wait until we harvest
