When to Plant:

  • Cucumbers should be directly sown a 3-4 weeks after the last frost in the spring.
  • They can be started indoors 4-6 weeks before your last frost, using a grow light and seed starting soil mix.

How to Grow:

  • You can amend your soil with compost or aged manure prior to planting. Preferably in the fall so it will over-winter.
  • Plant ½ inch deep and about 1 inch apart.
  • Alternatively, you can create hills 4 – 6 feet apart, with 6-8 seeds per hill. Cut the three weakest plants once seedling emerge for this method.
  • Make sure to keep soil moist, avoid letting the soil dry out completely.
  • Germination generally takes around 10 days when temperatures are ~70 degrees.
  • They are vine plants, so setting up a trellis may be beneficial depending on your garden.

When to Harvest:

  • Harvest before they are fully mature, as cucumbers tend to get seedy once they’re at their largest.
  • They grow very fast, so be sure to check often to see if it’s time to harvest.
  • Make sure to cut them off the vine, as pulling them off can damage or break the vine, preventing further production.
