Learn how to grow Pumpkin, Squash and Zucchini with our helpful growing guide
Pumpkins are easy to grow but do take up a bit of room in the garden. Pumpkins to come in a range of shapes and sizes and each will have a slightly different flavour. Sow Pumpkin seeds direct into the garden from Spring to Summer. Harvest when the vines die off and the pumpkins' stalks are dry. Leave a small piece of stalk attached to the fruit to prevent damp causing rot.
