Start Seeds Outdoors Plant heat loving cucumbers only when spring weather is warmed and night temperatures are consistently above 55F (13C). Amend soil well with aged manure or compost. Sow seeds 1 in. deep and 4 in. apart in slightly mounded hills that are 3 feet apart, sowing 4 or 5 seeds in each hill. Thin to the 3 strongest seedlings in each hill so plants have room to grow and mature.

For Containers: Sow seeds directly into containers 4 in. from edges. When plants are 3 to 4 in. tall, thin carefully to strongest seedlings. Final spacing should be one plant per pot 12 in. deep and 12 in. across or 2 plants in a larger container at least 18 in. across. For larger planters, grow plants at final spacing of 8 to 10 in. apart.  

Growing Notes Protect seedlings from marauding birds with plastic berry baskets, removing before plants get crowded. Feed every other week. A good mulch will aid shallow rooted cucumber plants, which require ample and consistent moisture in hot dry weather. Avoid overly wet or dry periods for good quality fruit. In hot dry weather, check and water plants in containers daily.

Harvest and Use: Keep all mature cucumbers picked; fruits left on vines will signal the plant to stop producing. Cut rather than pull fruits from vines. Slice them up for refreshing snacks, salads and sandwiches. Eat within a day or two of picking for best taste and quality.
