Where to Sow
Sow seed on edge to prevent rotting 1.5cm (1/2″) deep in individual 9cm(3 1/2in) pots under glass at a constant day and night temperature of 21°C.

What to do next
As soon as the seedlings have formed 3 true leaves, transplant into 15cm (6″) pots. When the plants are about 10cm (4″) tall, plant out outdoors once hardened off and all risk of frost has past. Grow up against netting or allow to trail along the ground. Can also be cropped underglass , planted into large pots or growbags . Provide some form of support and tie in stems as required.

July to September

When growing cucumbers underglass, do not plant all female and mixed flower varieties in the same area, to avoid cross pollination and bitter fruits.
