Cucumber is a traditional salad vegetable which can be produced either in a glasshouse or outdoors.The long green types found in the shops can only be grown with the aid of a heated glasshouse, but other forms are quite at home in your vegetable plot or produced earlier using cloches, cold frames or polytunnels. What the Americans call a "slicing" cucumber, Burpless Tasty Green Fs produces long slender fruits of excellent flavour. It is highly digestable and bitter free. Use support when grown outside or indoors.

All of our plug plants are grown by a 3rd party, they arrive to us ready for sale. The plants are grown in a biodegradable membrane and protect the roots of the plants in the early growth. Before packaging we water the plant and wrap the roots in a tissue to retain moisture, the plants are then pack in 6's in a blister pack container.
What to do next
When the plants arrive, check their condition, and remove from the packaging. Allow the plant time to recover by placing in a warm greenhouse or window in your home, if the plant requires moisture add water. After a couple of days the plant can be potted on to the next pot size allowing the plat to develop.
Remember, the plants have been grown in a warm greenhouse and will have not been exposed to temperatures below 6 degrees. Its important that the plant continues to grow in a similar environment, many plants will struggle if exposed to temperatures below Zero and will need protecting against this.
