Special Directions for Short Season Climates

SOWING: For early plants start indoors in pots. Or seed directly into sunny area of garden after all danger of frost has passed. Cover with 1/4-inch fine soil.

SPACING: In rows, leave 8 inches between plants; space rows 3 feet apart. Or place 6 to 8 seeds in hills that are spaced 4 to 5 feet apart.

GERMINATION: Approx. one week in 70 degree temperatures; longer in cooler weather. Keep soil moderately moist during germination.

Ed's Special Advice

Rich, well-drained soil is ideal for cucumbers. Excellent soil additive: processed manure or compost. Water deep and feed every 3 weeks. Can be grown on trellis or fence for support. Pick fruit carefully and regularly for continued harvest.
