Cultivation advice Cucumber Dragon Egg

  • Sow under cover (protected with warmth provided) from Mid spring, 3-4 seeds 1 in deep in a 3 in 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.
