Details

Botanical Name: Cucumis sativus

This bush variety forms a neat and compact plant with high yields of tasty fruit. Taking up less space than more traditional types, it is ideal for the smaller gardener and can even be grown successfully in tubs, pots and containers: it is tolerant to Cucumber Mosaic Virus. Choose a sunny good draining position where the soil has been well prepared.

We hope you enjoy these vegetable seeds, just another great example of  vegetable seeds from Mr Fothergill’s!

How To Grow

Sow 12mm (half-inch) deep, direct in final position. Sow 4-5 seeds in clumps, later thin to two strongest seedlings. Allow 60cm (2ft) between rows and 40-50cm (16-20in) between clumps. Seedlings will emerge after 7-10 days. At 5 or 6 leaves pinch out the growing tips to encourage side shoots. Keep well watered and prepare the soil with organic material and or complete fertiliser.
