Planting Pumpkins


amandagallibois@hotmail.ca added on March 28, 2018 | Answered

I recently planted a few pumpkin seeds I bought in a pack at the store. I planted them in a large cardboard cup and now I have 7 seedlings that are a few inches tall. I’m aware they probably need to be transplanted - it’s still too cold outside. Should I transplant them to one larger container or to a few separate containers? I’m not sure I could separate them because of their roots all being in that cup together. I didn’t really expect them to grow but now I am excited to continue. Also, should I fertilize them and if so, at what point? Thanks!

It looks like your seedlings are very tall and spindly. They are not receiving enough sunlight it appears. A grow light can help until you can move them into the garden.
