Here are a few important things to keep in mind as you are starting your giant pumpkins from seed.
- Start with good quality, moist potting soil and a container that allows for water to drain out the bottom.
- Soak seed in warm water for about 4 hours before planting.
- When you plant the seed, make sure the "pointy" end goes down.
- Keep the container in a warm area (70-80F) and provide a grow light or direct sunlight as soon as it emerges from the soil.
