Description

Planting Instructions: When growing plants on a trellis, space seed 6-8″ apart and thin plants as necessary; train plants to climb the trellis with an initial guidance. Alternatively, make 12″ hills at least 6′ apart. Plant 6-8 cucumber seeds per hill 1″ deep. After germination, thin to 3-4 plants per hill. Can also be started indoors 2-4 weeks before last frost. Cucumbers benefit from steady moisture.
