Good evening, Growers!
It always helps to start with excellent seeds. If you've ever wondered how to get 'pedigreed' seeds from 1,000+ pound pumpkins, read on.
Howard Dill's 2008 Premium Seed list and order form are available now at http://www.howarddill.com/premseed.html It's mail order only, and they are in Canada, so the sooner you place your order, the better.
I had a great conversation with Danny Dill when I was placed my order for this season's supply of Atlantic Giant seeds for the giant pumpkin growing workshops and my own efforts. They have been great sponsors of Pumpkinmania since the earliest years. (Danny mentioned a couple of particularly intriguing seeds that are highlighted on this year's list... You'll see them!)
Take care and good luck!
