Growing Tips for Big Max Pumpkin:
Pumpkins are friends with corn, melon and squash. You can also plant marigolds, nasturtium and oregano with your pumpkins to help deter pests. Very sensitive to frost, so wait until the days temps average 70 deg F. before putting out. Pumpkins do best when planted directly outside, but in areas with shorter growing times should start seeds indoors 4-6 weeks before last frost. Allow for good drainage, ample room and protect from wind. Mulching around the base of plants helps keep weeds out and moisture in.
