You can go to Amazon an order one of Don Langevin's books on growing giant pumpkins.
The info in the book can be applied to any pumpkin not just giants.
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...

It depends on the cultivar jon. A little pie pumpkin will max out at a couple pounds no matter what you do to it.Chaesman wrote:You have provided me with more information about pumpkins than I have found elsewhere so far. Just Currious How big do Your Pumpkins get?
