How to grow 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.

I haven't done this. I just grow squash and pumpkins for eating. But here's a link to a thread in the Growing Giant Vegetables forum. Perhaps you'll get the information you need there. Sounds like you got off to a good start : )
