When to sow
When to Sow Big Max Pumpkin Seeds
April to May under glass Mid May to June outdoors
Where to Sow
Sow seed on edge 1.5cm (1/2") deep to prevent rotting in pots or trays during April to May 2.5cm (1") apart under glass at 20°C (68°F) using good quality seed sowing compost. Sow outdoors mid-May to June direct into growing site 1.5cm (1/2") deep 2 to 3 seeds in each position 60cm (24") apart.
What to do next
Greenhouse sowings should be gradually hardened off once they have developed the first pair of rough leaves and transplanted to growing site in late-May to early-June 60-90cm (24-36") apart once all risk of frost has past. Outdoor sowings should be thinned to one plant per station.
September to October
To get very large fruits take out the growing point after 3 to 4 fruits have set then gradually reduce down so only 1 to 2 plants develop per plant.
A good source of pro-vitamin A, vitamins B1, C and E.
