2021 Pumpkin Nook !!
Pumpkin seed search peak time. While the seed search begins with he start of the new year, March is one of the busiest months of the year for seed sales. The question is, "Will the seed varieties you want still be in stock when you want to buy them?" There is usually plenty of the most common varieties. But, if it's something different, or uncommon that you're looking for, market supplies dwindle with each passing day. And, if you are still shopping for seeds at your local stores, chances are they will not reorder. The message is clear... buy now while everything is still in stock. See Garden Seed & Supplies.
Pumpkin Growing Tip: In addition to surfing all the online seed selling sites, contact fellow pumpkin growers. Contact garden organizations in your area. Most importantly, check out the giant pumpkin growing organizations online, the ones that hold giant pumpkin weigh offs. They can be a great source of giant pumpkin seeds with great genetics, as well as different and unique seeds. Check out giant pumpkin organizations today.
Giant Pumpkins- Every grower feels the urge to grow a giant pumpkin at least once in their lives. Those who try, often are 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 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. More on Livingston Seed Company
The Focus right now is upon seed selection. All to soon, we will turn our attention to germination of the seeds we are now acquiring, and preparing your patch for this year's crop of big and beautiful pumpkins. Will you directly sow pumpkin seeds into the garden? Or, will you start them indoors? Early starts are best begun indoors, where temperature and soil moisture can be best controlled. For bigger varieties, like the Atlantic Giant, we absolutely encourage you to start your plants indoors. Providing bottom heat with a germination mat is also recommended. It results in faster and more successful seed germination.
Make a plan... The very best gardens begin with a plan. If you have not done so already, March is a good time to make plans for your pumpkin patch. Those steps include:
