Pumpkin Nook!!

pumpkin-lanting, seeds, seedlings

Big Pumpkin Seed search news...  Many of you begin your seed search every year right here from Pumpkin Nook. Some of you may have missed our big announcement in November. After 20 years in the business, we have closed our garden store. It has been a great experience with many wonderful, long term customers. We now move on to retirement, so we can spend more time with our favorite hobby.... pumpkin growing and gardening in general! But, never fear, we will continue to provide and grow the depth and quality of Pumpkin Nook, and our other content sites, providing you with the very best, up to date information.

Pumpkin seed search enters high gear! When it comes to finding pumpkin seeds for the new season, pumpkin growers and gardeners in general, waste no time. We look for something old, something new, nothing borrowed, and occasionally something blue.... Yes, there are blue pumpkins! If you do not have your pumpkin seeds yet, what are you waiting for?


Looking for unique and wacky seed varieties? There are over 100 varieties of pumpkin seeds. The trouble, is most seed manufacturers carry only a limited number of the most common varieties. While most seed companies carry abut 3-6 varieties, Livingston Seed Company markets the largest variety we've ever seen. They offer about twenty varieties, including: Jaradale(a blue pumpkin) Red Warty, Peanut, Howden, Cinderella, and many more. Unfortunately, the closing of our online store leaves a void in online availability. Hopefully, Livingston Seed Company is available in your area.  More on Livingston Seed Company


Giant Pumpkins- Every grower feels the urge to grow a giant pumpkin at least once in their lives. Those who try, are often hooked for life. The challenge is huge. While there are many varieties out there, we highly recommend you look for Dill's Atlantic Giant pumpkin seeds, the granddaddy of them all. Looking for the best genetics? While many seed companies offer Dill's Atlantic Giant pumpkin seeds, you'll get the best genetics through a fellow grower. Ask your pumpkin growing friends or your local garden store, for the names and contact information of competitive giant pumpkin growers. You can also contact your local giant pumpkin groups, if there is one in your area.

Indoor Plant Starts - Starting seeds indoors to transplant later, is one of the early joys of gardening. Why let the garden stores have all the fun, when you can start your own seedlings!? Sometimes, pumpkin growers like to get a head start, by starting a few plants indoors, especially for giant pumpkins. while it is too early to start pumpkin seeds indoors, it's not too early to review the basics of seed starting, and seedling care.

 Pumpkins are tender annuals... Frost will kill them. Cold temperatures can stunt their growth. It is critical to resist the temptation to plant pumpkins too early in the season. Plant them outdoors only after all danger of frost has past. And, plan to cover them up on cold evenings.
