When to sow
When to Sow Organic Cucumber Marketmore Seeds
Indoors - Sow in May in pots under glass at 25°C. Glasshouse sowings should be gradually hardened off before planting out.Outdoors - Sow in the growing site in June, 60cm between plants, 2 seeds per station. Thin to the strongest plant as soon as possible. Water plentifully and often and pick the fruits regularly to ensure a continuous crop. When watering, always use tap water at room temperature to avoid any bacterial infection.
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.
