How do I grow that big?

Growing Giant Pumpkins

(Basics for beginners)


2004 was my first year growing so I put together a quick guide to help beginners with some important points. This is a way to try out growing giants to see if it is for you or not. If it is for you then you will want to seek out even more technical advice. But for now give it a whirl, and have fun!!!
