Many events wouldn’t be what they are without the help from many organisations or companies, our event is no different.
We’ve had support from Yates over many years of the Carnival and this year they are helping us out again. Thanks to Yates we have a whole bunch of seeds we will giving out to everyone that enters on the day*

It is always great to get a mention of the Carnival, and with all of the digital platforms these days it feels even more special when we get into some print articles.
Kiwi Gardener did a great article on the Carnival and can be found on page 90 of March 2019 edition, if you want a good read and love gardening pick up your copy today.
Tim Harris recently received the award for 2017 Southern Hemisphere Champion from The Great Pumpkin Commonwealth.
This is a great achievement for someone who is pushing his pumpkins weights every year, and pushing the NZ record closer to the world record each season.
The Great Pumpkin Carnival is the only GPC weigh off site in New Zealand, and we are proud of being part of the wider giant pumpkin growing community in the world.
To read all about Tim’s achievements and his lead up to this season read the Waikato Time article here.
Today we planted 150 giant and 50 miniature pumpkin seeds in preparation for the pumpkin growing season.
We sell these seedlings at the upcoming Hamilton Gardens Scarecrow Festival which is being held on the 4th of November, all the info about that event can be found here.
Priced at $2 each, 3 for $5 or $1 for 2 giant pumpkin seeds, this is great value and takes away the hassle and problems faced by some people when starting seeds themselves.
We will be planting another batch of seeds to stagger the seedlings during this busy period.
If you are a school wanting to grow please get in touch as we have a special deal for you.
Here are some photos from our seed planting today.
