Cucumbers grow best when direct sown after last spring frost when soil has warmed to 70°F. Prefers rich soil, but will produce well in almost any garden with full sun. Start transplants indoors five weeks before last frost date.

Cucumbers have shallow roots and need consistent watering for best production. Feed monthly with compost or fertilizer.
