Growing Cucumber

Monica Anderson asked 13 years ago

We are trying to grow cucumbers for the first time. It is presently in a pot -but will need support soon!! Is it warm enough to grow cucumbers outside here. Our veg plot is raised – at a sunny wall and fairly well sheltered. No greenhouse- would have to be inside if not.

Indoor varieties of cucumbers are grown in a greenhouse, or possibly a cold frame. Otudoor ridge cucumbers can be grown outdoors. Neither kind is frost hardy and the ridge cucumbers can only be planted out after the end of May.

You could chance it on the sunny wall or keep it in the brightest place indoors. Also it will need a bigger pot soon if it is to make enough growth to make cucumbers.
