How to grow pumpkin:

Sow the seeds on their edges half an inch deep in pots of good compost in early April indoors or in a heated greenhouse (alternatively pumpkin seeds can also be sown outside in May straight into the ground).

Put the pots outside into a cold-frame in May. Meanwhile make half as many mini compost heaps as you have pumpkin plants and cover them in soil.

At the end of May plant two pumpkin plants in each. Keep the plants well-watered. If you want really big pumpkins let only one develop on each plant.

Harvest them before the frosts come and store in a warm room to get really ripe.
