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.

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.

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.
