First Pumpkins Ready

Here we go…. the season has officially started! I can’t ever remember having sold pumpkins in August before but what the Supermarket Ad Agency wants, it gets.

Just three pumpkins were needed for a ‘green screen’ shot to be used in a promotion later in the year. It was an odd mix but who am I to argue.

2016 August Update

Whilst we will be keeping the progress of the ‘giants’ under wraps for a while yet I Just thought the PR peeps, Pumpkin Carvers and the Chefs might want a quick peek at will be available later this season.

These are our seed pumpkins and squashes which are grown indoors to ensure a more stable environment than the British summer can ever offer so we can better guarantee the quality of our seed stock for next year.

Being cosseted, these pumpkins tend to mature quite quickly which whilst having no advantage for the seeds it does allow any surplus indoor pumpkins to be sold to our TV and PR customers  for use in filming their Halloween episodes or event advertising.

Increasingly, the serious pumpkin carvers who are experiencing withdrawal symptoms also get in touch ‘to try out a new design’. Either way it keeps a lot of people happy!
