Hi, when should I plant the pumpkin and squash seeds I collected?

Hi Gill

Germinate your pumpkin seeds in late winter or early spring, after the frosts have finished as seedlings and young plants are frost tender (so now is a great time!). You can expect seedlings to appear after about 7-10 days, choose a sunny position for your pumpkins and plant in soil with plenty of Tui Compost and Tui Sheep Pellets.

Thanks, Tui TeamĀ

  • After watching a huge pumkin grow by its self only to find it was a tastless Giant when picked. Plantbarn told me it was because of the seeds coming wild from the compost!! So its buy plants next year!!
