What is the best way to grow cucumbers?

Answer

To grow cucumbers, prepare the soil about a month before planting them. Space out cucumbers since they are not good at competing for space and nutrients. Remove weeds because cucumbers favour the sunny days and mild nights. Seeds need adequate temperature to germinate. You can either plant them directly or pot them and then transplant. If you use pots to start the seed, you can cover the whole pot in the garden reducing the risk of damaging the gentle vines.

Choose a site with all-day sun and the soil should have a pH of 6.0 to 7.0, dig deeply and enrich the soil with plenty of compost and well-rotted manure, sow cucumber seeds at least two weeks after the last frost directly into the ground and when both soil and air temperatures average at least 65 degrees, spray the plants with fish emulsion fertilizer about four weeks after germination or side-dress with compost. Mulch the soil once the plants are established and provide at least an inch of water each week
