How To Grow Cucumbers grow best in a wind-sheltered site with rich, warm sandy loam. Sow seed when the danger of frost has passed and when the soil has warmed up to at least 18 C (65 F) - cooler soils lead to poor germination. Sow seed 1.0 cm (3/4") deep with 8 seeds per hill in hills spaced 120-150 cm (4-5') apart. After germination, thin to 3-4 plants per hill. Harvest cucumbers by cutting them from the vine with a sharp knife. To get a jump on the season, start seed indoors in fibre pots 3 to 5 weeks before planting out. Do not plant out until early June to avoid cool nights and blossom end drop. Cucumbers are shallow rooted and need a consistent, even supply of water. Water is best applied early in the morning - this avoids creating favourable conditions for mildew on the foliage.
