Haskins is encouraging gardeners to make the most of their home-grown pumpkins with a delicious soup recipe for Halloween.
Alasdair Urquhart, plant advisor at Haskins Garden Centres, commented: “Making your own pumpkin soup is simple and rewarding. Even if you haven’t had time to grow your own this year, you can still follow our step-by-step recipe.
“We recommend saving the seeds once you’ve scooped them out, so you can roast them and sprinkle on top of the soup, to bring extra flavour. For a novelty twist, you could try serving the soup using the pumpkin as a bowl.

For those wanting to use the pumpkin as a lantern, Alasdair Urquhart from Haskins has the following recommendations: “Top tips for prolonging the life of your pumpkin include using battery-operated tea lights or glow sticks rather than candles, as the extra heat can speed up decomposition. We also recommend wiping the interior of the pumpkin with lemon juice to prevent browning of the fruit.”
Haskins has centres in Ferndown in Dorset, West End in Southampton and Roundstone and Snowhill in West Sussex. For more information visit www.haskins.co.uk
