About www.giantpumpkins.co.nz

This website is for anyone interested in growing giant pumpkins here in New Zealand.  It will provide you with the information you require to grow giant pumpkins at your place.  From first time grower to a seasoned pro, I hope to bring something useful to everyone who visits the website.

I’m Sam, the guy behind the website, I’ve been growing since 2008 since my sister gave me a giant pumpkin seedling to grow and have been documenting what I have been doing every season here on this website since 2010.

On the website, you will find a lot of information, from the how to guide, facts and questions page through to the weight estimate calculator.

Growing pumpkins is a great hobby, you don’t need much apart from a seed and some ground to grow one.  Anyone of any age can do it, and it doesn’t take too long to do, only about 6 months.

Once you have grown one, you can get addicted to wanting to grow a bigger and better one each year.  This is where you need the information and support from other growers.

I hope you find this site informative, and helpful in your giant pumpkin growing endeavours.  I am looking forward to what the future holds for the giant pumpkin growers here in NZ.

Feel free to leave comments or get in touch about anything.

Cheers
Sam
