Planting Timelines

    - Soak your pumpkin seeds in water prior to sowing for approx 4 hours to encourage germination
    - Sow seeds into pots to begin with, before planting outside later
    - Fill pots or cell trays with compost and pat down to firm the soil
    - Make a small well in the soil with your finger approx 2 inches deep
    - Place one seed, pointy end down into each cell or small pot
    - Cover with compost, lightly pat down and water
    - Do not water again until the plant has emerged above the soil
    - Once one or two true leaves appear, the plant can be transplanted outdoors to a soil bed
    - When planting outside, space the plants approx 6-10 ft apart
