Planting+

Cucumber seeds require no prior treatment although steeping them in lukewarm water for 12 hours will encourage germination.

Care+

These cucumber plants can go outdoors, or in a greenhouse once there are no longer signs of an impending frost and night temperatures are above 15° C, preferably above 18° C. They can also be planted in a pot on your patio.
Do acclimatise the plants first to get them used to being outdoors. To do this, stand them in the shade for one hour longer every day for 7 days, after which they can be potted up to a larger planter (a large one can hold at least 3 plants). Ensure a climbing frame of sorts is available and stand the potted cucumbers in a warm sheltered spot in full sun.
Cucumbers need support - use 3 x 3 metre long canes in a teepee shape (as with beans and peas). Plant a cucumber seedling at the base of each case and tie it up. Those in the greenhouse will also need support - use individual canes there too, or hang garden string from the roof for the plant to climb up.
Once your cucumber starts to grow, remove the first flowers and side shoots until the main stem has at least 7 large leaves. Tie up at regular intervals and keep removing side shoots, especially on those growing outdoors because they need all the energy for the main stem and to form new flowers.
Once the plant is 2 m tall, top it off to encourage fruit forming. These cucumbers will grow without pollination of the flowers and will be seedless.
Cucumbers grow fast and will appreciate a feed of Bakker's fertiliser for flowering plants, or Bakker's tomato fertiliser. Water extra in periods of drought but do not water the leaves, only the soil. Keep the bed weed free, preferably by pulling them up and not hoeing, to prevent damage to the plant (cucumber roots are just under the surface). All this will keep your plants healthy.

Extra+

Cucumbers are terrific climbers that will always need supports to climb up. Their tendrils will attach themselves to anything. Take a close look - they resemble nothing more than old fashioned telephone cables that suddenly start to turn in the other direction. This is how they climb and keep well attached.
This variety (Cucumis sativus) is classified under Cucurbitaceae.
