Do you like to eat cucumbers? How about if you plant cucumbers yourself this year. You can find out what you should pay attention to here.
The cucumbers are too cold for us
The cucumber belongs to the pumpkin family. And it originally comes from the tropical regions. This is also the reason why many hobby gardeners try to grow cucumbers, but often fail. The plants are just too cold for us. With young plants, which you can buy from the gardener, this is a little easier to do.
Cucumbers need an even heat of approx. 22 degrees
However, if you want to sow your cucumbers yourself, you should not do this outdoors. Because an even heat of approx. 22 degrees Celsius is required for germination. The best thing to do is to pick the cucumbers in the heated winter garden from late March to early May. There they can develop well and are fit for outdoors. It is best if you put a seed in a pot up to 10 centimeters in diameter. That suits them best. Avoid repotting the plants, as the cucumbers cannot tolerate this.
