It’s been a tough year for growing pumpkins but at last they are ready for gathering them in and grading them. Today is the day to make a start.
A rallying call for Pumpkinista’s across the UK, our battle bus is in Westminster getting the message out about Big Pumpkins.
For too long the people of the UK have suffered from EU legislation that allows small, thin shelled and stalk-less pumpkins to be sold as suitable for Halloween Jack-O-Lanterns. The people of the UK deserve better. If this doesn’t work we will build a wall and make Asda pay for it. Either way it’s gonna be GREAT!
The first of our 2018 has emerged this morning so we are declaring the 2018 giant pumpkin season underway. Our early pumpkins generally go to PR companies who need to get their Halloween shoots filmed early September so don’t worry if you haven’t sown yours yet (we only sow our Halloween stock early to mid May). There are plenty of our seeds still available on GiantVegetableSeed.co.uk if you want to grow your own giant.
This seed germinated after 5 days in a propagator set at 24 degrees Centigrade which was a bit of a trial (we usually go for 30 degrees C (85F)) to test viabilty.
