Description

Cucumbers are great to grow in a self watering container as they need a lot of water and are very easy to grow in warm weather.  They do take up a lot of room so try growing them up a trellis or looking for a patio variety if you're tight on space. Smaller cucumbers are best for pickling and the larger ones are great for salads.
Curated for container and raised bed gardening, each seed pack represents 1 square foot of garden space - Perfect for planning your LifeSpace Garden.

how do i grow cucumbers

Start your cucumber seeds indoors about three weeks before the last frost date. The seeds will sprout in about 4-8 days at room temperature and when the shoots start to appear move your seedlings to full sunlight.  Transplant your seedlings into the ground at proper plant spacing (1 per square-foot).

It is possible to start your cucumbers outside when the weather is warm enough, meaning nighttime temperatures are reliably above 10 degrees C.

harvesting

Harvest your cucumber by clipping them off the vine when they reach the desired size, about 6-9". If you let your cucumbers get too big, it will signal the plant to stop producing more cucumbers. So Harvest them continually, even if that means giving some to all your neighbours!  Cucumber plants produce a very high yield of fruit! 

Helpful Tips and Tricks

Pruning the vine to one main stalk will keep production of fruit continuous. There are hundreds of varieties of cucumbers, experiment to find what you like!

Nutrition

Preparing and Using

Wash and scrub your cucumber with a vegetable brush. The long slender ones can be eaten with their skin left on, and you can peel the larger cucumbers. Try growing pickling cucumbers and make your own homemade jars of pickles!
