Do you do anything to them @EMC425 or just leave them to it?

2w
comment
EMC425

Beer but not yet; I hand pollinate and tie the flowers to ensure I get the right pumpkin (they cross pollinate easy). Remove any pumpkins that form close to the base or at funny angles (don't let it grow ontop of itself, many problems!!) when you have a few tiny pumpkins raise them above grown (suggest an old wooden create with a layer of straw on top with slug pellets on around and under the pallet) when the first one starts to 'over take' remove the others

EMC425

It starts to turn in colour then switch to a mix of local brewed ale mixed with water once a week after sundown adding slug pellets at all times and increasing the the amount of water as it grows. Avoid watering the leaves-always water along all vines, is leaves show signs of wilt it need more water if they show signs of burn-shade them through the hottest hours
