  • Autumn is the time to harvest a range of squashes and pumpkins. There is such a variety, many being a far-cry from the classic orange pumpkin. Some steal the show their size, others will draw you in with their unusual colour, markings or lumps and bumps.

    Their impressive flower spikes peak in June and July, perfect timing for a spectacular display at BBC Gardeners' World Live...
