when to plant pumpkins

Josephine Janes asked 10 years ago

We hope to try and plant a pumpkin patch, but are new to this with great intentions. The back of the seeds say need 90 growing days, which is 3 months, planting indoors for 4 weeks july the out for aug & sept. This site says plant indoors late april may for 4 weeks, then plant outside, would this not be planting too early or are we allowing for our dull irish summers! We are ready to go but dont know which method to use for crop harvest in early October.

Sow pumpkins in April or May, planting out at the end of May or early June in good weather.
