Cucumbers are one of my favourite summer crops to grow in the vegetable garden and like all crops when you’re growing your own there are so many more varieties to choose from. 

So as well as a few popular varieties such as ‘marketmore’ and ‘passandra’, I’m growing some rare and ancient ones too like ‘Kaiser Alexander’ and even ‘popping cucumbers’… but more on that one later. 😂

However, much like Basil, at the early seedling stage, cucumbers do not like to be overwatered and this can be a common mistake. If you notice your plants leaves are yellowing then there’s a good chance that is why.   They prefer lightly moist free draining soil or compost that is bordering on being a little dry when compared to a lot of other seedlings water preferences. I test this by familiarising myself with the wet and dry weight of the potted p Compost, Gardening, Fruit, Cucumber Seedlings, How To Plant Cucumbers, Pickling Cucumbers, Growing Seeds, Cucumber Plant, Cucumber Seeds
