How do you grow cucumbers in a greenhouse?

Answer

If growing indoors, plant two cucumbers in a growing bag at the end of May and support with a garden cane attached to the ceiling of the greenhouse. If your greenhouse is heated, plants can go into bags from March. Plant outdoor cucumbers in early summer. A week or so before planting, acclimatise plants by putting them in a cold frame. Alternatively, stand in the shelter of a shaded wall and cover with fleece. Prepare the soil well, adding plenty of well-rotted manure and space plants 90cm (35in) apart. After planting, the top of the rootball should sit at the same level as the surface of the soil.
