how to grow cucumbers in a greenhouse?



buy a female plant its easier.
keep greenhouse at about 60 or 70(f)
plant in 9inch pot or 3plants to a grow bag.
keep compost moist but dont get it water logged.
i place an upturned plastic bottle with the bottom cut off down the side of the pot so i can water into that instead of straight onto the surface.
cucumbers dont like their stems to get wet.
train the stem up a cane like you would a tomato until it touchs the roof,then pinch the top out.
the tip of each side shoot is nipped out at 2 leaves beyond the female flower
once the q's grow feed with a tom food every couple of weeks.
