Free Grow a Giant Pumpkin Project

It’s time to begin thinking about growing a GIANT Pumpkin or Watermelon! Once registration is complete, we will begin with some educational programs in effort to help you get your GIANT project off to a great start.

Register to participate by April 1st

Meanwhile, It’s time to begin testing your soil at the location you plan to grow your pumpkin. Stop by our office for a FREE Soil Testing Kit. Once you collect your soil, return your soil testing boxes to our office so we can get them off to the lab. It will take approximately 2 – 3 weeks to get your soil results. Once the test results are in, we can help you determine what your soil needs for your Growing Giant project.

Are you interested in learning how to grow giant pumpkins and watermelons for competition? The NC State Fair is not too far off so now is the time to get started!
We are excited to announce that a local award winning GIANT pumpkin grower has offered to help teach us how to raise an award winning giant and share some of the award winning seeds. You will learn from the beginning stage of planting to everything you’ll need to do at each stage of growth, all the way to safely loading and transporting your pumpkin to competition.
