My Children love growing pumpkins for Halloween. It is such a treat for them, to go to the pumpkin patch and pick their own homegrown warty beauty 🎃. We went full on Zombie this year! They are Incredibly easy to grow, so if you have the space and your little ones love Halloween like mine do, give it a try. These are the seeds I used

How to grow Pumpkins

Pumpkins take 90-120 days to reach maturity. Sow April – June for harvest September – October. I sow my Pumpkin seeds in April in a good quality compost, I then cover with cling wrap or a propagator lid and leave to germinate on a sunny windowsill. Germination occurs within 7-14 days. When large enough ( see picture below) prick out and pot on into individual pots. Allow them to grow on, planting out when all risk of frost has passed. *Don’t forget to harden off seedlings raised indoors.

The pictures below document the stages of growth, from seedling to Zombie Pumpkin 🎃
