HANDY TIP

Cucumbers prefer a moist atmosphere, spray the floor of the glasshouse with water regularly to maintain humidity. One of the traditional ways to ensure germination is to fold a damp sheet of kitchen paper in half, and place the seeds on their edge in the fold; Then place in a plastic bag and put them in the airing cupboard.  Check daily and once germinated, place in compost and grow on as normal.
