How to Sow
Sow in fertile, warm soil after danger of frost has passed.
Sow seeds directly in the garden, about 1” deep.
Give large-fruited pumpkins plenty of room to ramble.
For improved drainage sow in mounds, or hills, of soil 12 inches in diameter, 6-8 inches tall.
Sow 4-6 seeds in groups about 3 inches apart. Each group should be about 4-6 feet apart. Cover with 1 inch of fine soil and firm lightly. Keep evenly moist.
Seedlings emerge in 7-14 days.
Suggestion: Do not plant pumpkins and other squash family crops in the same spot 2 years in a row.

How to Grow
Thin seedlings to 2-3 per group when they are 1-2 inches high
Keep plants well-watered during the growing season, especially during dry spells. Plants need about 1-2 inches of rain per week during the growing season. Use a rain gauge to check to see if you need to add water. It's best to water with a drip or trickle system that delivers water at low pressure at the soil level. If you water with overhead sprinklers, water early in the day so the foliage has time to dry off before evening, to minimize disease problems. Keep the soil moist but not saturated.

Pumpkins have both male and female flowers on the same plant. Male flowers will open first and the female flowers will open later. The female flower has a miniature fruit behind the blossom.

Monitor for pests and diseases.
If you are trying to grow extra-large pumpkins, allow only one fruit per plant to mature.
