Pumpkin is an annual trailing or reclining plant; in the former case, this variety requires plant supports to thrive. Its stems grow 5 to 8 metres in length, while its flowering period spans from July to August. This variety is very often used as a cover plant for walls, arbours or fences. Pumpkin fruit are an ideal addition to dried compositions.
Growing: sow the seeds directly into the soil in May; sow 2 to 3 seeds into each position in 50-100cm spacings. The seeds germinate in 10 to 14 days at 18-20oC. The plants require fertile composted soils; this variety grows best in sunny or semi-shaded positions. 100 to 150 grams of seeds produce around one thousand plants.
