Pumpkin cultivation – tips


Location & space requirements

  • Climbing plants need at least 4 square meters of space.
  • Non-vining plants (zucchini, rondini, Halloween, etc.) are content with 1 square meter.
  • If there is a lack of space, you can also offer the pumpkin plants a framework. Ornamental pumpkins and calabashes are popular climbing Cucurbitaceae.
  • To guarantee a good yield, you should grow at least 2 plants of the same variety.

  • Pumpkins love humus-rich soil and, as their origin in warm countries suggests, a sunny, sheltered location. They take care of themselves in the shade and do not or hardly set at all.

  • A compost heap as a planting site is often too rich in humus, so that the plant “shoots up” too much and sets fruit too late, which may then no longer ripen. In this case, it makes sense to mix the compost heap with a layer of soil or place the plants to one side.



  • From the beginning of April in pots or in mid-May directly in the open ground; the planting site should be enriched with compost or rock flour.
  • In case of night frost, the young plant should be protected with fleece;
  • Place pre-grown plants (2 cotyledons, 1 leaf) outside after the Ice Saints; water the root area before planting out to ensure that all roots survive transplanting undamaged;
  • Transplanting, i.e. changing location and temperature, causes enough stress anyway!
  • Attention: Pumpkin seedlings are very popular with snails!
