I planted ONE seed last year and it about took over my entire back yard! I finally had to start trimming it back. We ended up with 11 medium sized pumpkins and the kids had a great time growing them. The only advice I have is to plant with manure, water until established and during dry spells and sit back and watch it take over. I plan on doing it again this year.
Are in in FL as your profile says? You may want to start them earlier, before it gets too hot.
Okay, here is something that I found: "Pumpkins require three to four months to grow and mature so planting them on July 4th is customary for harvesting for Halloween, however pumpkins that are planted at this time are more susceptible to disease and pests because of the high humidity and temperatures. Planting them August 1st will yield mature pumpkins at Thanksgiving. The best pumpkin planting time in Florida is March and April, but these will produce pumpkins way too early for Halloween."
