Everyone needs a hobby, so why not grow giant pumpkins?

On the fringes of extreme sport, giant pumpkin competitions seem to be on the increase – and Atlantic Giant is a winning variety. Growing prize-winning fruit isn’t difficult: simply only allow one fruit to grow per plant, water during dry periods, and always maintain good fertility levels. Your only problem is transporting your prize winning pumpkin to and from the venue. Good luck!

Or, if competitions aren’t your thing then growing Atlantic Giant is still fun, and a certain way of impressing your neighbours on the allotment! And at the end of the year you will be making more pumpkin jam than you have friend and relatives to give Christmas presents to.

Normally pumpkins are grown outdoors, but if you are serious about growing competition fruit then you will get bigger fruit from plants grown in a polytunnel. The plants need plenty of space as the trailing vines can grow up to 6 metres long.
