Direct sow into your garden. Plant outdoors after the last frost, in full sun. Pumpkins, are big feeders so plant them in rich garden soil. Mix in ample amounts of compost & manure prior to planting. These are vining plants so if you are limited in garden space, plant them where they can grow on a trellis or fence. If growing in a container choose a very large one. Keep the soil moist but try to avoid watering the leaves. Mulching around the plants helps to keep the weeds down, & retain moisture.
