Landscaping & Nursery Information for Home Gardeners


Pumpkins and squash must be gathered before frost. Place the fruits in a sunny spot, no two touching, avoid bruising at all times. Cover with canvas,  blankets or burlap in cold weather. When the shells  become hard -in two or three weeks- remove to warm, dry quarters; for instance near the heater in  a dry cellar. So handled they should keep till mid-winter or later. Never store in a damp or a cold place  or they will quickly decay.
