Hi, I'm on the Central Coast of NSW. Is there any way of growing pumpkins so they're ready for Halloween?

It says 15-20 weeks so you are outside of that timeframe. The seeds need warm weather to germinate. and grow. You could try, the pumpkin grows pretty quickly then takes about 3-4 weeks to mature to eat. Need full sun.
