2018 Giant Pumpkins

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.
