Carving a pumpkin into a Jack O’ Lantern on Halloween is a popular pastime, and pumpkins are now synonymous with the holiday. However, the tradition began with the Celts on the Celtic festival of Samhain (pronounced Sow-en), with the carving of turnips into face lanterns to protect from evil spirits. It wasn’t until the Irish reached America several hundred years ago, and discovered pumpkins, that traditions changed. Now, we can’t imagine a Halloween without pumpkins!

 

These ‘Grow Your Own’ kits differ from others on the market as they provide at least 2 opportunities to grow the plant from seed. Choose from Small or Large. The kits contain more than one seed and two environmentally friendly mediums for them to grow in. Place them in different areas and that’s two chances of germination! (Any type of squash germinates incredibly easily in just days)

LARGE - 13.99 (Ideal as a gift)

  • Reusable sturdy matt black coffin box (size 13cm x 23 x 5cm)
  • Large wooden stake for marking them up as they grow into seedlings
  • Parchment paper instruction ‘scroll’ tied with satin ribbon
  • Four seeds and two small plant pots
  • Bag of compost with 'Morticulture' sticker
  • Recycled, shredded orange tissue paper packaging (acid-free)
  • Orange and black tiny paper roses

SMALL - 11.99

  • Reusable sturdy black coffin box (size 9cm x 19 x 5cm)
  • Short wooden stake for marking them up as they grow into seedlings
  • Parchment paper instruction ‘scroll’ tied with satin ribbon
  • Two seeds and two coir pellets
  • Recycled plastic saucer (but one only. To make the kits more eco friendly I suggest placing the other pot on an existing saucer, in the bottom of an egg box, on an old jar lid - anything! It’s always best to recycle.)
  • Recycled, shredded orange tissue paper packaging (acid-free)

NB - they will be adult pumpkins for Halloween 2021 when planted in spring 2021.
