Top tips for visiting a pumpkin patch

- Dress for the weather and don't forget you are visiting an open field! It will likely be muddy at this time of year so wellies are a MUST! Bring spare clothes and shoes in the car for any muddy mishaps. Layer up as the temperature can vary so much in October!

- There are normally wheelbarrows to carry your chosen pumpkins but it's worth bringing your own scissors or secateurs in case your chosen pumpkin is still on the vine.

- If you plan on getting a few pumpkins, consider lining your boot with a bag or tarp to avoid covering your car in mud. Or bring a brush to give them a quick once over.

- Use this as an opportunity to get more wear out of this year's Halloween costumes!
