* Brush the pumpkin flesh with lemon juice to make it last longer
* Pick up a battery candle from the Garden Centre as a safe alternative to illuminate your pumpkin
* Scrape out and wash the seeds to bake in the oven at a low temperature for 30 minutes. Use to feed wild birds in your garden or dust with salt and enjoy as a healthy adult snack
* Leave your pumpkin in the corner of garden for wildlife such as squirrels and hedgehogs to enjoy once Halloween is over
* Pumpkins have a high-water content and rot quickly so make perfect composters for your garden. Chop up the pumpkin and bury it in the soil to encourage worms which aerate and fertilise the earth
