Growing Cucumbers from seed·

Cucumber is a tender plant, so it’s best starting cucumber seeds indoors, under-glass or into a heated propagator, one with cell compartments would be ideal. A decent free-draining peat-free seed compost will give them a strong start.

When to plant Cucumber seeds?

About three weeks after sowing, the cucumber plants can be planted outdoors in early June.

How long for cucumber seeds to germinate?

Cucumber germination takes 6 to 9 days.

Beware of mildew with Cucumbers - pick over any unhealthy-looking leaves. Whitefly may also pay a visit, if its prevalent use with an organic spray. Keep the watering steady, especially when the plants start to flower and before long, you’ll be eating fresh Cucumber through the summer months.
