The 2019 pumpkin season has kicked off this weekend with a few of the mini pumpkins (Baby Boo squashes) being available for collection. Perfect for inclusion in autumnal arrangements or rustic wedding table decorations.
As it stands at the moment, all the 2019 giant pumpkins (Fork lift & Pallet size) are spoken for. The big carvers (beach ball to space hopper size – will fit through a standard doorway and can be carried by one/two people) are growing well but are still green. I will post more details as they start to ripen.
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.
