Grafted Cucumber Plants For Stronger Plants, Higher Yields and Greater Disease Resistance
Many of us have small gardens with growing space at a premium which may mean that we can't rotate crops as we would like.
Grafting combines a hardy base plant highly resistant to soilborne disease, grafted onto a variety with superior flavoured fruit. Grafted stems are held together with a clip until the cell structures knit together producing a strong disease resistant plant. Enabling you to plant in the same spot year after year.
Grafted Cucumbers have been grown commercially for many years because they:
-Are much more vigorous, producing larger, stronger plants.
-Are less susceptible to nutritional disorders.
- Have greater resistance to pests and diseases.
-Produce fruit earlier (by 2-3 weeks).
-Give higher yields of top quality fruit over a longer period compared with normal plants.
- Are particularly recommended for greenhouse growing, especially if planted directly into the soil.
You will be amazed as the plants reach their full potential and produce amazingly healthy plants and bumpercrops.
Supplied as well-rooted young plants in 7cm pots.
Grafted Cucumber Passandra-This highly recommended, all female cucumber is a heavy cropper and, when picked, regularly produces lots of medium sized dark green fruits of 15-18cm long.
