October is reaching a close, the clocks are about to change and the spooky season is upon us.
Whether you like it or not, porches across the world will soon be adjourned with pumpkins and squashes of all shapes and sizes, with designs ranging from the spookily intricate to the silliest of simple.

Which is why, this Halloween, we're running a competition for the best-decorated pumpkin or squash!
