Cucumber Seeds

After all danger of frost has passed, plant 6 seeds-- 1" deep, in hills--4-5' apart. When plants are 4" high, thin to the 3 strongest plants in each hill. Fertilize liberally with a 4-6-8 formulation like our ALGOplus . Proper spacing and growing plants on a trellis or with support help improve air circulation, which helps prevent fungal issues. Mulch plant roots well, and water consistently, especially during periods of heat and drought to prevent bitter-tasting fruits.
