    PUMPKIN SOWING AND PLANTING TIPS

    • Grow pumpkins from seeds or seedlings.
    • Seed is viable for 6 years.
    • Direct sow pumpkins in the garden in spring after all danger of frost has passed and the soil has warmed to 70°F (21°C). In warm-winter regions, sow pumpkin in midwinter for harvest in early summer.
    • To start pumpkins indoors before the last frost in spring, sow seed in peat pots 4 to 3 weeks before planting out. The indoor temperature should be 66°F to 85°F (18-29°C) until germination.
    • Pumpkin seeds will not germinate at a soil temperature below 66°F (18°C).
    • Sow seed ½ to 1 inch (1.3-2.5 cm) deep.
    • Seeds germinate in 4 to 10 days at 85°F (29°C) or warmer.
    • Space plants in the garden 12 to 18 inches (30-45 cm) apart in all directions.
    • Pumpkins will benefit from the warm soil created by planting on hills or mounds; raise the soil 12 inches (30 cm) tall and 20 inches (50 cm) wide and grow individual plants on hills. Space hills 4 to 5 feet (1.2-1.5 m) apart.
    • Water to keep the soil from drying.
    • Fertilize with fish emulsion or a soluble complete fertilizer at half strength.
    • Add aged compost to planting beds in advance of transplanting.
    • Pumpkins prefer a soil pH range of 5.5 to 6.8.
    • Grow pumpkins in full sun for best yield.
    • Avoid planting pumpkins where cucumbers or melons have grown recently.
    • Common pest enemies include aphids, cucumber beetles, flea beetles, squash bugs, squash vine borers, slugs, and snails.
    • Common diseases include bacterial wilt, fusarium wilt, downy mildew, powdery mildew, cucumber mosaic.
