Give them plenty of water. Pumpkins like tons of water when the flowers and fruits are forming. If you’re having a dry spell, vines wilt or flowers shrivel and drop off. “If there’s no rain, water deeply once a week. A large vine needs about three gallons of water to soak the area,” says Esslinger.
Do you dry pumpkin seeds before planting?
Larger seeds will have a better chance of germinating and growing healthy vines. Spread the seeds on a layer of wax paper and allow to dry overnight. Pumpkin seeds are sticky, so wax paper works best for the initial drying period. Once the seeds are dry, line a baking sheet with paper towels.
Should I soak my pumpkin seeds?
While it may seem counterintuitive, soaking pumpkin seeds before roasting them actually results in crunchier finished pumpkin seeds! The soaking process helps soften the otherwise chewy exterior shell of the seed, enabling it to crisp up better in the oven.
