Your Pumpkin Seed Search begins... 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 grow the depth and quality of Pumpkin Nook, and our other content sites, providing you wiht the very best, up to date information.
Pumpkin seed search goes into 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!?
As soon as the new year begins, seeds of all kinds are flying off the shelves. Make certain you get the varieties you want, by getting them now ...... before someone beats you to them.
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. Unfortunately, the closing of our online store leaves a void in online availablilty. Hopefully, Livingston Seed Company is available in your area. 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 better begun indoors, where temperature and soil moisture can be best controlled. For bigger varieties, like the Atlantic Giant, we recommend an indoor seed start. Providing bottom heat with a germination mat is also recommended.
