  • 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.
  • Ideal for growing in containers of at least 8″ diameter, must be kept moist.
  • Keep them picked and they’ll keep producing.
