Just Currious when is the best time to start my Pumpkins indoors so they can be transplanted and ready to harvest by early october?
Also any tips on Starting them and transplanting them would be appreciated
if you want an honest answer- I'm not sure. However, since I'm starting inside i figured this would be a good of a time as any. This is my first year growing them- but I got starter plants last year that did a whole bunch of nothing. I'd rather get a few pumpkins early (believe it or not, most of my pumpkins last me anywhere from a week (rare) to 4 months if i don't carve it before they begin to rot. As long as they don't get eaten by a squirrel, and are ready for harvest somewhere near Halloween- i'll be OK.Chaesman wrote:Wow started already SPierce, When Do you project your harvest will be?
Do the Giants require an earlier start time?
thanks for any info
I started mine in plastic baggies and on paper towels. I get plenty of germination from them and didn't have to do anything fancy! Although, i have big max's i was trying to start as well and none of them really germinated. The regular pumpkins, however, did nuts!Chaesman wrote:Well I filed the tips as suggested (Hope I Did it correctly), I also soaked them overnight and they will be started in the house this afternoon I have 6 big max
and 28 regular pumpkins to start. I had a fast question before I start.
Does the orientation of the seed matter when I place it in the starting media?
I thought I read somewhere to start them Point Down Just want to make sure this is correct...
