Growing Calendar for Pumpkin Collection 3 x 3
Delivery: Despatched from Early June
• Nine healthy young plants delivered to your door, ready for planting
• Naturally vigorous and disease-resistant
• Strong, F1 hybrid varieties
• Ornamental and productive
• Ground-covering leaves suppress weeds effectively
Grow 3 x 3 varieties of home-grown pumpkins, Jill Be Little, Harvest Moon and Polar Bear. These colorful and attractive pumpkin varieties fill your plot with fruit and broad leaves that cover bare soil. This, in turn, keeps the number of weeds down on your plot.
We deliver your plants in early summer at the perfect time for planting. You receive three young plants of three varieties (nine plants in total) arriving to your door in packs that act like mini greenhouses. This means your plants get the right ambiance and the right soil to start off strongly while they are in transit from our nursery to your home.
You receive three plants each of:
Pumpkin Jill Be Little - Miniature pumpkin type with an attractive orange skin with deep ribs, perfect for roasting whole or drying for table centerpieces.
Pumpkin Harvest Moon - Carving type variety, ideal for Halloween lanterns or chopping up in cubes for roasting for including in a heart-warming ratatouille.
Pumpkin Polar Bear - Ghost-white fruit, perfect for Halloween! Plants produce large white pumpkins weighing up 20–25 kg (44-55 lbs) with contrasting orange flesh.
To help you plan, your nine plants in your pumpkin collection will cover an area of roughly 3m x 3m. Around two weeks before planting, we recommend you add a supply of rich compost or well-rotted manure to the existing soil to give your plants the nutrients they need to get growing.
When your nine pumpkin plants come into flower, treat them to a feed of sulphate of potash, to boost the performance of your plants.
Our products are all grown with the utmost care and to high standards of quality. We regularly check our nursery stock to determine exactly when they will be at the optimum time for despatch.
We despatch our fresh, nursery-grown live plants (including vegetables, trees and flowers) when they are at a stage of growth ready for you, the customer, to plant on at home.
The delivery period shown on your order confirmation indicates when you can expect to receive your order and we will endeavour to despatch your plants in this period within 7-14 days
