It’s gearing up to the exciting time of the growing season here in NZ. The weigh off and competitions will start kicking off this month.
I’m impressed with the plant in the tiny pumpkin patch this week. I’m busy organising things, and it’s that time of the year when I contemplate giant pumpkin growing in NZ.
Here is an update on the tiny patch. Will I have a giant this year eventually? I also have some awesome looking miniatures this year.
There are more female flowers on the plant. Will this mean I will finally have a giant this season?
My pumpkin has stopped growing and started to rot. How does this effect me? What could have caused it?
Preventative spraying for powdery mildew, fixing a watering problem and getting sand underneath my pumpkin is what I’ve been up to lately.
My pollination plans didn’t go the way I wanted. A replacement part turned up last week, and I should be doing some important things.
One of my pumpkins is pollinated, but is it the one I really want? I sort out some watering for over the holiday period, and has my season already come to an end? Find out what happened in this blog post.
What can you put underneath your pumpkin? I talk about 3 different items you could use. Helping your pumpkin reach it’s full potential during the season.
Do you have both male and female flowers on your plant? Or just males currently? Find out what my plant is doing in the tiny pumpkin patch.
