Cucumber can be started early in small pots and transplanted when the weather is warmer. Best grown in an area of full sun and with regular watering. Cucumbers are a trailing plant that can be grown along the ground or trained up a trellis or framework. Will need ties to begin early training. Growing up a trellis can save space and keep fruits clean.

Good companion plants – beans, celery, lettuce, sweet corn, cabbage and coriander
