Strictly speaking, I haven’t got any cucumbers – what I have instead is a seedling which I hope will grow into a plant, survive the transfer outside and produce cucumbers for me. It is however the first time I have attempted this as I previously lived under the belief that I would need a greenhouse for them.
The variety I have (Burpless Tasty Green F1 Hybrid) can be grown in or outdoors, so I may keep a plant inside. But I have allocated a part of my garden to cucumbers this year. I just need to turn the compost heap again….
