Frequently Asked Questions

Learn How it Works!

Are giant pumpkins hard to grow & can you grow more then 1 on a plant.?

It depends on your goal. To grow a possible state or world record the average champion growers give plants daily waterings & plant care. So much it is hard for them to take summer vacations without extra helpers involved. Growing 1 on a plant is a must to grow possible state records size 1500 to 2600 lb fruits. However, if you are happy with say 300 to 1000 lb fruit you can grow several on 1 plant. Growing 300 to 500 lbs requires much less work say 2 days a week watering & caring for plants.

When do I start my giant pumpkin plants?

We typically start them mid to late April depending on your climate. Warmer climates can start sooner.

How many hours of sun do giant pumpkins and watermelons need?

Giants like as much sun as your typical vegetable plant. 8-10 hours or more is great.

How far apart should Sunflowers be planted?

We recommend three to four feet of spacing apart to get them over 13 feet tall.
