Can you beat the farmer?

20 Feb 2011

Category: events

Pick up FREE pumpkin seeds from Farmer Jacks 21 March to 4 April, and grow your own pumpkin.  If yours is bigger than champion pumpkin farmer Stuart's, then you can win a prize!

Pick up your free Atlantic Giant pumpkin seed between 21 and 27 March 2011.  Grow it, nurture it, love it and sing to it - whatever it takes to make it BIG.  Judging will be in October.

Open to anyone of any age from anywhere.  You just have to use our seed (its the same as the farmer uses) and grow your pumpkin fairly.  No sewing in lead weights or swapping it for one you bought.  Grow it yourself and have a bit of fun.

Pumpkins need a lot of space, lots of nutrients and lots of water and sunshine to create big fruits.  A pumpkin vine will spread out very quickly, so don't plant it next to your prize flowers.
