    I'm looking to add more plants to my new container garden, and I was wondering if Early Sweet Sugar Pie Pumpkins (by Burpee) can grow inside of a 10-15 gallon container. Is that enough room for the roots to grow? I've never grown pumpkins before, and I'm not really looking to grow any big ones.

    probably not if it is a vining plant. and even a bush plant may not yield much as it probably needs a lot more soil mass than 15 gallons.

    Maybe not but I would try it anyway ! Just won`t have huge pumpkins but maybe some smaller ones if plenty of sun and fertilizer !
