Stuart Shim has great success growing giant pumpkins.
Check out his blog page, www.pumpkinmania.blogspot.com. where you’ll see Walter Andersen store manager, David Ross’, giant pumpkin.
David got the seedling from Stuart when he taught a great pumpkin class at our Poway store in May 2008.
David’s plant is growing quickly, it recently developed its female flower (male flowers develop first and the plant grows both so it can pollinate itself) and is the offspring of a giant pumpkin that grew to 518 pounds.
