How do pumpkins grow successfully?

Plant pumpkins in early summer near the edge of your garden. Space pumpkin plants 2 to 5 feet apart (depending on the variety). Grow each pumpkin on a 3-foot wide mound of warm, fertile soil that has a pH of 6.0 to 6.8. Improve your native soil by mixing in several inches of aged compost or other rich organic matter.
