Growing instructions

Preculture in April. Plant in pots and transplant outdoors after a hardening phase after the blackthorn winter in May. When planting, be very careful not to damage the sensitive root ball. In late May, the pumpkins can also be sown directly outdoors. Space the plants about 100 cm apart from each other.
Loves a permeable, nutrient-rich soil, warmth and plenty of water.
