Growing giant pumpkins is becoming increasingly popular in Australia, why not give it a go?!
We hope our new feature competition for the 2023 Show - Pumpkin Growing - will be a rewarding venture for individual and group entrants.
Giant Atlantic Pumpkin Seeds (sourced from Atlantic Seeds, Nyora) will be supplied by us and your mission is to grow the largest, or most unique looking pumpkin between October 2022 and show day (25th February 2023).
While the growing season for these pumpkins can continue into March/early April in South Gippsland, we hope that competitors will enjoy seeing how big their pumpkin gets by show day and being part of the display at the showgrounds.
Our competition will feature four classes:
Entries open: 1st October 2022
Entries close: 18th February 2022
Entry fee: $2 to be paid on seed pickup
Giant Pumpkin seeds are available from the following:
