Choose the sunniest and largest area in your garden. Plant 5 to 7 seeds outdoors in hills. Planting should in early spring to mid-summer, 3 weeks after last frost and when soil has warmed up to at least 70 F. Plants grow 2 ft tall and vines spread up to 10 ft.

Soil Requirements:

Requires fertile slightly acid soil in a well drained location in the garden. Apply much and grass clippings, or straw around base of plant. Add well composted manure.

Water Requirements:

Keep soil consistently moist, but not waterlogged. Water well during dry and hot spells.

Use RootBlast, Vegetable Alive, and Slow Release Fertilizer when transplanting outdoors. Apply Miracle Gro every two weeks.

Harvest Tips:

Protect ripening pumpkins from damp ground by placing them on boards. Cut pumpkins carefully from plants to prevent damaging the vines.

Jack O Lantern has the right name. We had an 8-pound pumpkin, and carved a spooky face. It is great! For a Halloween pumpkin, BUY THIS!
