via A Healthy Life For Me

Amy of A Healthy Life For Me is a self-confessed Organic Garden Maven.

She has a blog full of fantastic information including her top 10 tips for growing cucumbers at home.

Amy suggests planting cucumbers 3 inches apart and rows 5 inches apart.

You should also plant with compost and manure. After the vines develop, be sure to add more.

Cucumber PH Level

Cucumbers love the heat. Be sure to look for a warm to a hot sunny spot in your garden that gets afternoon shade.

Amy also suggests watering up to twice a week. You should also keep the soil moist at all times. A soil PH level of between 6 and 7 is optimal.

How To Start Growing Cucumbers

When you first plant your cucumbers, be sure to keep them covered. This will keep them free of pests.

Once your plant flowers, you can remove the covers. A good way to tell if your Cucumbers are deficient is through their leaves. If they turn yellow, they need more Nitrogen.

You might also be interested to know that the more you pick your cucumbers, the more they will produce.

Where possible, pop your cucumbers on a trellis. This makes the fruit easier to pick and out of reach of animals.
