Cucumbers are simply brilliant for salads and sandwiches, and contains very little calories too!
Cucumber seeds need to be sown singly into pots between February and May under glass. For non-hybrids the seeds will germinate at 15°C but for hybrids the temperature needs to be around 25°C for optimum germination. Germination takes 6 to 9 days.
Varieties with Powdery Mildew resistance should not be sown before the beginning of March.
