Planting pumpkin seeds

Zone St. Petersburg, FL | Anonymous added on November 12, 2017 | Answered

I read your article about pumpkin seeds and I am wondering(I am a NOVICE!!) - since I live in Florida, can I plant the seeds soon? How long should they dry first? I had a beautiful red warty heirloom pumpkin and I'm anxious to try growing one!!! Thank you

If you live in an area of Florida where there are never frosts, then yes, you can plant the seeds now or anytime. In a colder area, plant after the last frost of the winter. If you are planting right away, I don't think you need the drying period. See this article for tips:
