The Kitchen Garden Magazine Podcast is here, packed full of hints, tips and advice from the team.

Happy Halloween and welcome to episode 9. Today Rachel Atkins tells you everything you ever needed to know about Pumpkins. Growing advice, tricks and treats, varieties, harvesting, storing and carving.
