Pot Ready, Large, Healthy plants individually rooted in large plugs of compost. Ideal for planting into baskets, containers or small areas in the garden. Best results achieved if grown on for a short while in 9cm/10cm pots prior to planting out if planting straight into garden borders. Tender varieties will need protecting from frost. Compost volume around 4-5cm deep x 3-4cm square. Foliage height 5cm-12cm (depending on variety). Full growing instructions are provided.
• Just as with tomato plants, you can grow cucumbers up canes in a grow bag. Make sure they get enough compost for their roots by using grow pots in the grow bag, approx. 5Ltr pots, with the bases cut away and inserted into the bag. This makes them easier to water and feed ... and you’ll get healthy growth from your cucumber plants if you can keep them constantly watered and feed when the first fruits start to appear.
• Watering and feeding should be carried out on a ‘little and often’ basis according to the requirement of the crop. However, do avoid letting the plants run dry. This doesn’t mean you can drown your plants once a week and leave your plants standing in water and think you’ve down a good job! What you’ll need to do is ensure the soil your plants are growing in remains moist but not water-logged at all times – don’t water the plants rather water the soil or compost surrounding the plants – this will encourage the shallow roots to grow strongly.
Special requirements - If possible, try to maintain the green house temperature around 16˚C, and avoid cold draughts as cucumbers are susceptible to cold. Apply ‘cool’ glass to protect the fruit from the glare of the midsummer sun.
