Pumpkin, Squash & Courgette Seeds


Courgettes need lots of water, so it's a good idea to put a plant pot in the ground close to each plant and water into it - that way the water goes to the roots, where it's most needed. If you're growing pumpkins and squashes make sure that you've got enough space, as they can take up quite a lot of room in your veg patch! You could grow them on the top of an open compost heap, where they'll be perfectly happy.

Pumpkin 'Matt's Monster'

  • Grow a whopper!
  • Seed from award-winning 95 stone (605kg) giant pumpkin
  • Enter your pumpkin into the T&M sponsored Autumn Pumpkin Festival
Be in with a chance of growing a record-breaking giant pumpkin with this seed taken from 'Matt's Monster'! Grown by Matt Oliver, horticulturalist at RHS Hyde Hall, Chelmsford, the heaviest outdoor-grown pumpkin in the UK weighed in at a massive 1,333.8lb - that's 95 stone or 605kg!

Matt grew his giant pumpkin with a seed that Thompson & Morgan famously purchased for a whopping £1,250 at auction. The seed came from the then heaviest pumpkin in the world, which weighed 2,323lb (166 stone) grown by Beni Meier from Switzerland in 2014. After the official weigh-in, and many photographs later, Matt decided to hollow out the giant pumpkin, turning it into a 'boat' and he then rowed it across the lake at RHS Hyde Hall!

Thompson & Morgan has designated April 14th 2017 Pumpkin Sowing Day. So order your 'Matt's Monster' pumpkin seed and sow them on or around this date for optimum results.

Did you know? The world's heaviest pumpkin which beat Mr Meier's 2014 record weighed 2,624.6 (1,190.49kg) when it was authenticated by the Great Pumpkin Commonwealth (GPC) Germany on 9th October 2016. It was grown by Mathias Willemijns of Belgium.
