Help with Cucumbers
hi, this is my second year of growing veg in the greenhouse and I have decided to grow a cucumber its a fespot all I have done is planted in the ground with plenty of space around it and watered it. Does anyone have any tips on how to grow these as I have heard cucumbers can be hard to grow.
Start off in pots, indoors, keep them warm, harden off and plant out when the nights are warmer.
I have been growing cucumbers in the greenhouse and on the patio for a couple of years. Currently seedlings still in 3" pots but due to go into grow bags with growpots quite soon. Greenhhouse variety is Beth Alpha. Patio ones La Diva, not tried them before. They are quite vigerous needing support, plenty watering and regular feeding but if all goes well produce loads of lovely cucumbers.
I have the growbags on a shelf and they grow up to the ridge of the roof and try and go down the other side too if they get the chance. Keeping them tied in a bit as they grow seems to help.
