How to Grow Jarrahdale Pumpkins from Seed!
# 1 | Sow your Jarrahdale Pumpkin seeds outside, in warm fertile soil after any chance of frost has passed.
#2 | Sow 4-6 Jarrahdale Pumpkin seeds in groups about 3 inches apart. Each group should be about 4-6 feet apart. Cover with 1 inch of fine soil and firm lightly.
#3 | Keep your soil evenly moist until germination occurs which should be 7-14 days.
#4 | Keep your Jarrahdale pumpkins well-watered during the growing season, especially during dry spells. Plants need about 1-2 inches of water per week during the growing season. It's best to water your Jarrahdale pumpkins with a drip or trickle system that delivers water at low pressure near soil level. If you water your Jarrahdale pumpkins with overhead sprinklers, water early in the day so the foliage has time to dry off before evening, to minimize disease problems. Keep the soil moist but not saturated.
Note: Do not plant pumpkins and other squash family crops in the same spot 2 years in a row.
