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

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.
