Cultivation Advice Cucumber Armenian Yard Long

  • Sow under cover (protected) from Mid spring,
  • 3-4 seeds 1in deep in a 3in pot in good compost,
  • and thin later to the best one or two plants per clump.
  • Transplant no later than 3 weeks after seeding as cucumbers have a tap root that can be easily damaged.
  • Ensure the weather is warm if planting outside,
  • ensuring a sheltered and sunny position.
  • Cucumbers germinate and grow best when summer really gets going or under glass.
  • To avoid bitterness, keep plants evenly moist at all times.
  • Can be trained on a trellis to save garden space or left to roam.
  • Keep them picked and they’ll keep producing.
