I have a friendly pumpkin growing competition with my mates wife each year.

This years effort is hanging in there, that's the best way I can put it. I have it in a grow bag and it it is probably around 15 inches in height, with 1 very sorry looking flower. It hasn't really grown a great deal since the end of May.

In light of the dreadful weather we are having are there any tips on how I can not only keep it alive but encourage it to grow.

It is in a semi-sunny spot as in it gets full sun till around 3pm and then some late evening sun (can't believe I wrote that) or should I say cloud from about 7pm.

I have heard they like beer but unfortunately so do I, so any other options would be preferred.
