My "Atlantic Giant" pumpkin is now three metres tall and the fruit is approximately quarter of a ton.  You all have no chance.   8)

While all the tending and then all the growin is going on followed by the waiting....

......had anyone thought of what they will do with these mammoth monsters once harvest time arrives?

Perhaps you might get some ideas together while the growing is going on?  ;)

I put my main pumpkin plant (1 main leaf and 2 seed leaves only but massive already!) into a nice big container today.. Filled with 3/4 rotted manure and compost.. Hope it likes that :)

Hoping to get it planted on the allotment after the first early potatos are up.. after the leeks haha  ::)

planted f0ur
 a week ago and they went nuts so they are all buried up to the first two leaves in ten inch pots  all i did was stick em in cells on the kitchen window and bang

jack o laterns is what i planted and i have my pallets ready and also have put them out in the cold frame to cool em down lol

Just noticed this post.

I grew this variety last year. They only grow to a modest size and are intended to be a Hallowen size carving pumpkin. If you want to stand a chance of winning, you may have to have a re-think.
Did it really tell you to do THAT on the packet?

Seeds are SOWN, planting's for plants (and bulbs & tubers)!

Well it sounds as though the pumpkin's already too big to fit on the mantlepiece, so it'll have to be the trophy instead  :D
I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days all attack me at once...
