Best Fertilizer For Pumpkins

Last updated: 6/20/2022

Ever wanted the biggest pumpkin patch in your neighborhood?

The Pumpkin is probably one of the most versatile types of the winter squash plant. We have grown to love the pumpkin and its hard, smooth ribbed skin with yellow to bright orange color, especially during Halloween and Thanksgiving.

A large percentage of giant pumpkin plants are harvested to become decorative ornaments during Halloween.

Farmers will bring out their giant pumpkins and families would join in the tradition of carving out pumpkins into jack-o’-lantern that are lit-up with candles inside.

Children will be at awe as they see the pumpkin fruit turn into a jack-o’-lantern with its flickering lights as they go around for their trick or treat.

During Thanksgiving, families share a delicious slice of pumpkin pie after a hearty dinner of roast turkey and other delicious dishes. Pumpkin fruit can also be baked, roasted, and made into a delicious purée.

It can also be mixed with salads or made into a warm and hearty soup. 

Ok, so how do you make sure you grow some big pumpkins.

Well it starts with fertilizer.
