Sow pumpkin seeds for Halloween

Why not try growing your very own pumpkin for halloween this year?!

Spring is the perfect time of year to sow your pumpkin seeds.Follow the steps below:

  1. Place the seeds on their side, 1cm deep, in a 8cm pot of compost.
  2. Keep the compost well watered and in a sunny spot.
  3. In May, move your seedlings in to a colder spot, ready for moving outside.
  4. After a week, plant your seedlings outside.
  5. Make sure you water regularly. Try cutting the bottom off of a used plastic bottle and place upside down, lid removed, in to the soil next to the plant. This will allow the water to reach the roots.
  6. Feed with natural fertiliser every 10-14 days.
  7. Once your fruit starts to grow, make sure they sit off the ground on a tile or piece of glass.

Wait for the harvest!
