About Pumpkins

Did you know pumpkins have been grown in North America for almost 5,000 years? It’s a lot of fun to grow this native plant.

There are two requirements to growing pumpkins: Having the space to grow them and a long growing season, generally from 75 to 100 frost-free days. Growers in northern locations need to plant by late May; in southern states, plant by early July.

Pumpkins are heavy feeders and require a lot of nourishment.  That said, if you feed and water them as directed, pumpkins are easy to maintain.

Of autumn’s wine, now drink your fill;
The frost’s on the pumpkin, and snow’s on the hill.

‚ÄďThe Old Farmer‚Äôs Almanac,¬†1993

How to Plant Pumpkins

Pumpkins are big, greedy feeders. At least 2 weeks before you plan, mix lots of compost or aged manure into the soil at the planting site.

  • Pumpkins have extensive root systems and respond to an application of 3 to 4 pounds of 10-10-10 fertilizer per 100 square feet. Fertilizer should be broadcast evenly and worked into the top 2 to 3 inches of soil prior to¬†seeding.
  • Strongly acidic soils will need to be limed. If your soil test finds that your soil pH is too lower, add the recommended amounts of¬†lime.
  • There are two ways pumpkin seeds are usually planted: rows or¬†hills.
  • A hill does not mean the soil has to be mounded; it‚Äôs a¬†spot containing a group of plants or seeds.¬†Hills warm soil quickly (so seeds germinate faster) and aid with drainage and pest¬†control.
  • Prepare hills by digging down 12 to 15 inches and mixing/filling in with lots of aged manure and/or¬†compost.
  • For hills: Plant 4 to 8 feet apart. The soil at each hill may be mounded or left level with the rest of the area. Set seeds 1 inch deep with 4 or 5 seeds per hill.¬†Keep seeds moist until germination.¬†When the plants are 2 to 3 inches tall, thin to 2 to 3 plants per hill by snipping off unwanted plants without disturbing the roots of the remaining¬†ones.¬†
  • For rows: Sow seeds about 6 to 12 inches apart in rows that are 6 to 10 feet apart. Once the seedlings grow, thin to one plant every 18 to 36¬†inches.¬†


GROWING

Pumpkins are very thirsty plants and need lots of water. Water 1 inch per week. Water deeply, especially during fruit set. When watering: Try to keep foliage and fruit dry unless it’s a sunny day. Dampness will make rot and other diseases more likely.

  • Use¬†row covers¬†to protect plants early in the season and to prevent insect problems. However, remember to remove covers before flowering to allow pollination by¬†insects.
  • Bees¬†are essential for pollination, so be mindful when using insecticides to kill bugs or fungicides to control fungus. If you must use, apply only in the late afternoon or early evening, when blossoms are closed for the¬†day.
  • To attract more bees, try placing a¬†bee house¬†in your garden. Or grow colorful flowers near the¬†patch.¬†
  • Be aware that poor light, too much fertilizer, poor weather at bloom time, and reduced pollinating insect activity can result in poor fruit set, shape, and excessive blossom¬†drop
  • Add¬†mulch¬†around your pumpkins to keep in moisture, suppress weeds, and discourage¬†pests.
  • Side-dress with aged manure or co most mixed with¬†water.¬†
  • When plants are about 1 foot tall, just before vines begin to run, fertilize regularly with a high-nitrogen¬†formula.
  • Just before the blooming period, switch to a high-phosphorus formula¬†fertilizer.
  • Remember that pumpkins are tender from planting to harvest. Control weeds with mulch. Do not overcultivate or the pumpkin‚Äôs very shallow roots may be¬†damaged.
  • Most small vine/fruit varieties can be trained up a¬†trellis.
  • Larger varieties can be trained upward on a trellis, too, though it is an engineering challenge to support the fruit, usually with netting or old¬†stockings.
  • If your first flowers aren‚Äôt forming fruits, that‚Äôs normal. Both male and female blossoms need to open. Be¬†patient.
  • Pumpkin vines, though obstinate, are very delicate. Take care not to damage vines, as this can reduce¬†the quality of¬†fruit.

How to Grow the Perfect Pumpkin

  • Pinch off the fuzzy ends of each vine after a few pumpkins have formed. This will stop vine growth so that the plant‚Äôs energies are focused on the¬†fruit.
  • Pruning the vines may help with space, as well as allow the plant‚Äôs energy to be concentrated on the remaining vines and¬†fruit.
  • Pumpkins produce main vines (from the center of the plant), secondary vines from the main ones, and tertiary vines from the secondary vines. Each type may have¬†flowers.
  • Once fruit has started to develop, prune the main and secondary vines to 10 to 15 feet and remove the tertiary vines, if desired. Bury the cut tips in¬†soil.
  • Or, gardeners who are looking for a ‚Äúprize for size‚ÄĚ pumpkin might select the 2 or 3 prime candidates and remove all other fruit and¬†vines.
  • As the fruit develops, they should be turned (with great care not to hurt the vine or stem) to encourage an even¬†shape.
  • Place a thin board or heavy cardboard under ripening melons and pumpkins to avoid decay and insect¬†damage.

To grow a giant pumpkin, try the ‚ÄėDill‚Äôs Atlantic Giant‚Äô jumbo variety. Fruit can grow to 200 pounds on 25-foot¬†vines.

  • Plants need 130 to 160 days to mature, so start seedlings indoors, then thin to the best 1 or 2 to¬†plant.¬†
  • Feed heavily and cultivate¬†shallowly.
  • Remove the first two or three female flowers to generate more leaf surface before a plant sets¬†fruit.
  • Allow one fruit to develop. Remove all other female¬†flowers.
  • Take care that the vine does not root down near the joints to avoid¬†breakage.
