hi i have one cucumber plant no greenhouse or veg plot
will it be ok in a planter outide



Depending on weather conditions where u r - probably this time of yr is still too cool - I would recommend a bright windowsill to keep it warmer.
They are thirsty plants, but don't overwater, just water often. Later when they are bigger and heavier, they'll need some support with canes & string or whatever.

sorry that was a bit of a bungled reply. Wot i meant was too cool for putting it outside.

I grow my cues in pots with a spriral for them to climb up and they seem to do ok - just dont let them get too big and they will be sweeter.

Once the plant starts to fruit, a rwice-weekly feed with liquid tomato food will help, too. Good luck with yours!
