    Kathleen, Absolutely you can plant flowers in your pumpkin patch. My mother and grandmother planted marigolds along all sides of their garden plots to draw in the bees and butterflies.

      Lina, Thank you for your help. It's so funny that you said too plant marigolds around the border, i always dd. This year i want a ''huge''pumpkin patch.

    just be aware that the pumpkin vine may take over and provide too much shade for the flowers -- you need to keep them FAR FAR away from where you actually plant the pumpkin/squash/watermelon, etc., seeds!
