Bringing the joy of gardening to people of all ages and abilities.
FOR ALL PUMPKIN CONTEST PARTICIPANTS!
NO NEED TO TURN YOUR PUMPKINS. The stems on the giant pumpkins are delicate and turning them can break them or disturb the flow of nutrients. Continue cutting off all pumpkins and blooms except the champion. All the energy of the plant will go into that one pumpkin to make it grow.
