Monster Pumpkins

Grow a record-breaker!

We're giving away 250 Monster Pumpkin seeds to Campaign for School Gardening schools around the UK and running a competition to see who can grow the heaviest one! The seeds were harvested from one of two gargantuan pumpkins grown by RHS fruit and vegetable expert, Matthew Oliver.

The deadline for applying for some of the seeds has now passed. We will be in touch with the lucky schools very soon.

Get hold of some giant pumpkin seeds of your own (we recommend  'Atlantic Giant' seeds for best results) and follow the advice in our Monster Pumpkins resources (on the right of this page) for tips and advice on how to grow a whopper next year!
