  • Planting Instructions

    When to Plant:

    • Cucumbers should be directly sown a 3-4 weeks after the last frost in the spring.
    • They can be started indoors 4-6 weeks before your last frost, using a grow light and seed starting soil mix.

    How to Grow:

    • You can amend your soil with compost or aged manure prior to planting. Preferably in the fall so it will over-winter.
    • Plant ½ inch deep and about 1 inch apart.
    • Alternatively, you can create hills 4 – 6 feet apart, with 6-8 seeds per hill. Cut the three weakest plants once seedling emerge for this method.
    • Make sure to keep soil moist, avoid letting the soil dry out completely.
    • Germination generally takes around 10 days when temperatures are ~70 degrees.
    • They are vine plants, so setting up a trellis may be beneficial depending on your garden.

    When to Harvest:

    • Harvest before they are fully mature, as cucumbers tend to get seedy once they’re at their largest.
    • They grow very fast, so be sure to check often to see if it’s time to harvest.
    • Make sure to cut them off the vine, as pulling them off can damage or break the vine, preventing further production.
