Pumpkin vines as peak performers
Sun-drenched: Let your pumpkins cure in the sun for a few days then store in a
cool dry spot.
There's an old saying, ''To
be a successful gardener,
And you better believe it.
In a warm, sunny spot you can
expect them to take off like there's
If space is lacking, you can grow
pumpkins vertically. The vines
send out a number of runners that
cling to whatever's in their way, so
you can easily train them up fences
or trellises. As the fruit becomes
larger, create a sling out of bird
netting or pantyhose to help
support its weight.
Choose a spot that gets at least six
hours of direct sunlight a day and
dig in heaps of compost.
Traditionally, pumpkins are
planted on mounds about 80 to
90cm in diameter, with moats dug
around them. These moats catch
water runoff and direct it to the
roots. A flat area is just as good for
growing pumpkins though. So too
is a sloping bank, provided lots of
moisture is supplied.
If sowing on mounds, sow four or
five seeds directly on top of the
mound. Once seedlings have
established, thin them out, leaving
the two strongest plants.
If you're still experiencing a lot of
inclement weather in your area,
start your pumpkins indoors and
transplant when the weather is
consistently warm. If cold weather
threatens, place a cloche over your
seedlings to protect them.
As the plants grow over the next
few weeks, they need food -- and
plenty of it. A fish emulsion,
(available from garden centres -- or
make your own by soaking fish
remains in water) is ideal. A
general fertiliser is also good. Feed
once a month to provide fat, tasty
After a while, the runners will
start to race off with the main vine
growing 10 to 15m long if you let it.
There is also a secondary vine,
which usually grows in the
opposite direction. As they grow,
shoots emerge from the main and
secondary vines which can be
selectively pruned so that more
energy can go into producing fat
fruit on the main and secondary
vines -- or at the very least, so you
can control where your vine is
heading. Some gardeners also like
to remove a few fruit so the
remaining fruit grows larger.
Pumpkins are harvested when
they have a deep, uniform colour
and a hard rind. When you press
the rind with your fingers, it
should not dent. For most
pumpkins this will be after the
vines have shrivelled and died but
before frost has set in.
If storing pumpkins, leave about
5cm of stalk attached to the top. Let
your pumpkins cure in the sun for
a few days then store in a cool dry
If storing them in a garage or shed
you may want to put them in a
simple handmade chicken wire
cage, otherwise they may become
dinner for neighbourhood rodents.
