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 emerges for this method.

Make sure to keep the 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.
