Cucumber Seeds - Lemon

  • Catalogue Code 1020-2283
  • Pack Contents: 1 Packet - 8 Seeds

Lemon-yellow, spherical cucumbers that are tender and sweet. These easy-grow curious yet attractive ‘rounds’ are excellent for salads and pickling. You can expect a long and fruitful harvesting season with this heavy-croppers.

Sowing indoors

Sow seeds in individual 9cm (3 ½ in) pots filled with seed compost. Push these large seeds on their side into the compost to a depth of 1cm (1/2 in). Place in a warm environment 20-25°C (70-75°F). As seedlings develop grow on in cooler, light conditions but avoid direct sunlight.

Planting on indoors

Transplant young plants to grow bags, pots or a border in the greenhouse and providing string or cane supports to train stems up.

Planting on outdoors

Gradually accustom plants to outdoor conditions for two to three weeks before planting out to permanent outdoor planting positions. Space plants 30cm (12in) apart.

If growing outdoors provide a protected shelter like a mini polytunnel as this variety appreciates a warm environment.

Harvests

Regular picking promotes further growth. Water well and feed with a high-potash fertiliser when flowers appear to encourage flower and fruiting.

Correct. The 4 star rating was for the seed delivery only. The seeds will not be sown until next year. Regards Colin
