My tip for growing pumpkins. I have a large drum filled with potting mixture about 1 foot from the top. I placed seeds in and the plant is growing well. All my lawn clippings go in the drum. It has a little water hole about 6 inches from the bottom. I have put a trellis on the side of the drum so the pumpkin can climb and hang from that, instead of growing on the ground. This keeps the plant slug free.
