Can I grow Small Sugar Pumpkins in a planter and use Miracle Grow Potting Mix (instead of cow manure or compost)?

Yes you can. I would use at least a half whiskey barrel size planter unless you are able to water them multiple times a day in August when they are mature and it is very hot.

Thanks for the info! I am soaking the seeds right now and plan on planting tomorrow.
