Pumpkins are tender annuals. I know you're excited to start of your pumpkin patch. So am I. But, don't let that excitement cause you to plant them too early in the season. Frost will kill your plants. Cold temperatures can stunt their growth. It's best to wait until the overnight temperatures stay above forty degrees (F). It is critical to resist the temptation to plant pumpkins too early in the season. Plant them outdoors, only after all danger of frost has past. And, plan to cover them up on cold evenings.

Indoor Plant Starts - Starting seeds indoors to transplant later, is one of the early joys of gardening. Why let the garden stores have all the fun, when you can start your own seedlings!? Sometimes, pumpkin growers like to get a head start, by starting a few plants indoors, especially for giant pumpkins. while it is too early to start pumpkin seeds indoors, it's not too early to review the basics of seed starting, and seedling care.

Looking for unique and wacky seed varieties? There are over 100 varieties of pumpkin seeds. The trouble, is most seed manufacturers carry only a limited number of the most common varieties. While most seed companies carry abut 3-6 varieties, Livingston Seed Company markets the largest variety we've ever seen. They offer about twenty varieties, including: Jaradale(a blue pumpkin) Red Warty, Peanut, Howden, Cinderella, and many more. Unfortunately, the closing of our online store leaves a void in online availability. Hopefully, Livingston Seed Company is available in your area.  More on Livingston Seed Company

Giant Pumpkins- Every grower feels the urge to grow a giant pumpkin at least once in their lives. Those who try, are often hooked for life. The challenge is huge. While there are many varieties out there, we highly recommend you look for Dill's Atlantic Giant pumpkin seeds, the granddaddy of them all. Looking for the best genetics? While many seed companies offer Dill's Atlantic Giant pumpkin seeds, you'll get the best genetics through a fellow grower. Ask your pumpkin growing friends or your local garden store, for the names and contact information of competitive giant pumpkin growers. You can also contact your local giant pumpkin groups,, if there is one in your area.
