Growing big pumkins?

hagendeanApril 27, 2007

My kids want to try to grow some big pumkins this year. We put about 2 truckloads of cmpost into the garden where the pumkins will be planted. Can someone tell me what to add to the soil to make the pumkins grow large. If possible be specfic on what to add and when. Thanks for any help.

A great seed!!!
but seriously, without a soil test it's hard to say.
You maybe better off concentrating your efforts on pest
and disease control, these can end a season real quick.
Have you been to bigpumpkins.com Thats the best website
I know of for large pumpkins, lots of great advice there.
