Pumpkin Pollination Time!!

Dearly Beloved, we are gathered here together, to unite:

This Man:

And This Woman:

Put on the romantic music. It's baby making time in the pumpkin patch. And oh, what a lovely time it is! It's an amorous time in the pumpkin patch. But, watch out! Growers report that this amorous mood is contagious. Perhaps, you should warn your spouse!?

Learn more about pollinating pumpkins

Experiencing poor pollination? Find the causes and cures-- Poor Pollination FAQs.



Here are some tips for the pollination period:

  • Avoid applying insecticides and repellents until the fruit is properly set and growing. Insecticides kill off the pollinators, along with the harmful insects..
  • Switch  from a high nitrogen to a high phosphorous fertilizer. More on fertilizing.
  • Adding a layer of compost: feeds the plant, helps to retain soil moisture, and helps to keep weeds down.
  • Provide a constant supply of water - Your pumpkin plant continues to need lots of water, even more so in hot, dry weather.
  • Cover the vines with garden soil. This promotes secondary root growth, and results in much bigger pumpkins.
