Over 20 heirloom varieties of cucumbers to choose from.

CUCUMBERS

Soil pH 5.5 to 6.5 - Plant outside 1 to 2 weeks after the last spring frost.  We recommend growing cucumbers on a trellis, for ease of harvesting and more thorough pest control.  Plant 2-3 seeds every 8 to 12 inches along the trellis.  When the seeds sprout, thin to one plant every 8 to 12 inches.  As the plants grow, they will need help at first guiding them up the trellis.  Harvest the cucumbers often and do not let the cucumbers get too big, as this will slow up future productivity of the plant.  Cucumbers like plenty of sun and water.  Avoid wetting the plants, if possible, when watering.  If cucumber beetles are a problem in your area, Rotenone may be dusted on the plants to control them. Once a cucumber plant starts to wilt from a bacterial infection, remove the infected plant immediately.  DO NOT put the diseased plant in your compost pile.
