SLASH­ING PUMP­KINS

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - HOME -

TRAIL­ING pump­kins need to be stopped to ini­ti­ate more fe­male flow­ers. When run­ners ex­tend be­yond 3m, pinch out grow­ing tips. This will stim­u­late more side- shoots, most of which carry fe­male and fruit- bear­ing flow­ers. Once pump­kins start to swell, in­crease the rate of wa­ter­ing and feed the plants with ex­tra- weak fish emul­sion ev­ery 10 days.
