Pumpkin Growing Tips:

  • Pumpkins do best when the seeds are directly planted in the ground.
  • If your growing season is very short, seed indoors in peat pots about 2 to 4 weeks before last spring frost.
  • Be sure to harden off before transplanting.
  • Wait until the plant soil is 70ºF or more before sowing seeds.
  • If you live in a part of the country where there is still danger of frost in late April or early May, start pumpkin seeds indoors about two weeks before planting.
  • Sow one seed for every four-inch peat pot filled with grow mix.
  • Keep the pots watered, never let them dry out.
