    Default Anyone growing Pumpkin Hooligan?

    Is anyone growing Pumpkin Hooligan courtesy of the freebie from T&M.

    Pumpkin : Hooligan F1 Hybrid (Seeds)

    I have some large ones still in pots in the GH and was thinking about trying to grow one up a nice strong trellis.

    How are they doing for you?

    I have some kind of pumpkin growing. Don't know what 'make' it is. As far as I can work out, they have germinated from the seeds I gave the hens last year when I hollowed out the halloween pumpkin!! Can't wait to see how they do None of the pumpkins I sowed have done anything so thank goodness for nature!
    Happy Gardening,

    Hi, yes I am. Still fairly small and lost one but they have been outside for the past 2 weeks. I'm thinking of training mine over an old metal garden arch which I've shortened and placed over one of my raised beds. Thought it would make good use of space.

    mine will just take over the entire site like they did last year with any luck the bruts. Mind we had some magnificent pumpkins last year though.

    I also have some Marina Di Chioggia in the GH. Could they be grown up a strong trellis or are they just too heavy?

    I'm doing Hooligan.
    They were only sown a few weeks ago, so aren't outside yet. All my courgettes and pumpkins are only babies at the mo

    I had an old packet of the T & M Hooligan Pumpkin seeds that I planted earlier this year, but thought had failed. Just harvested 4 lovely little lunch sized fruit. My first year of growing my own and have used lots of old UK seeds to great effect here in central France.
