Cucumber/Pickling

Note: Germination instructions are not on seed packets, follow the instructions below for starting seed.

Cucumbers don't do well if roots are disturbed, so it is best to plant seeds directly in the garden or use deep seed starting pots if you must start indoors. Plant your seeds in soil, 2 to 3 weeks after last frost, when soil and air temperature is at least 60 F. Thin so there are 4 plants per hill. Cucumbers can also be grown in rows instead of hills, spacing 24" apart in rows 24 - 36" apart. Trellised plants can be grown as close as 10" apart. Cucumbers only take 55 to 65 days to maturity, so you can have multiple harvest by growing 2 to 3 weeks apart. Plants grow 1 ft tall and vines spread up to 6 ft.
