How To Grow Pumpkins From Seed: Make sure the soil where you are going to grow your pumpkins is a good fertile soil. Seeds should be sown in pots or seed starting modules for later transplanting.

They should be ready to transplant 3 or 5 weeks after sowing. Pumpkins are frost sensitive, so be careful not to transplant them outside until the last frost has passed. 

Plant out at 100cm spacing. Water well if the soil dries out. Harvest in September/October when the leaves start to die back or before there is a risk of frost.
