  • Q:

    When do I sow Pumpkin seeds?

    I have just taken the pulp out of a Pumpkin and have saved the seeds to dry. Is there a particular time to sow these seeds either in the greenhouse or outside?

      The best time to sow the Pumpkin seeds is in April indoors or the end of May or beginning of June if sowing directly into the ground outside.
