The Q&A Archives: Pumpkins

Question: I planted a package of your pumpkin seed and now I have 23 plants growing in my garden. How many pumpkins could I be getting per plant?

Answer: Wow! What a terrific harvest you'll have from all of those plants! To keep plants a manageable size, pinch back the ends of each of the vines when they've reached about five feet. This will help the plants direct their energy into maturing the fruit - otherwise they'll continue to grow and develop flowers until frost hits. Plan to apply generous amounts of water during the growing season; thoroughly soak the root mass of each plant when you water, and try not to wet the leaves, (to help avoid fungal diseases). Good luck with your Great Pumpkin Patch!
