Sow and Grow: Sow: Indoors, February-May, 0.5 cm (1/4-inch) deep, on edge, in small pots of compost. Water well and place in a warm position. A temperature of 20-25 degree C (68-77 degree F) is ideal. Keep moist. Seedlings usually appear in 7-21 days. When plants have developed 3 or 4 leaves, transplant to 12 cm (5-inch) pots and grow on in cooler, but not cold conditions.

Hints and Tips: Cucumbers do best in a humid atmosphere, so damp down greenhouse regularly. Once fruits form, regular feeding will ensure the best crops.
Care and Cultivation: Provide support and train plants up canes, strings or netting. Stop lateral growth, two leaves past each fruit. Remove male flowers (those with no swelling behind the petals), as pollinated female flowers produce bitter fruits. Pinch out growing tip when plants reach the roof.
