pumpkins

I palnted a pumpkin seed(s) about a month ago. Nothing has popped throught the soil yet. The area I planted is covered with westernn bark nuggets. I was hoping this would keep the moisture in thwe soil. By the way I live in Sothern Cali, so there is no prblem with temps too low. What have I done wrong?

Pumpkin seeds germinate quickly. If you covered the seed with mulch, that may have done it in. Plant another seed and don't mulch it.

Plant the seeds about an inch deep and keep moist....but not wet....until the seed germinates. Don't cover seeds with mulch.
