Planting and care

  • When planting seeds in the ground, cover with netting or a berry basket to keep pests from digging out the seeds
  • When seedlings emerge, begin to water frequently, and increase to a gallon per week after fruit forms
  • When seedlings reach 4 inches tall, thin plants so that they are 1 feet apart
  • If you have worked in organic matter into the soil before planting, you may only need to side-dress your plants with compost or well-rotted manure
  • Or, if you wish, use a fertilizer from your garden store which is low nitrogen/high potassium and phosphorus formula and apply at planting, 1 week after bloom, and every 3 weeks with liquid food, applying directly to the soil around the plants
  • Or, you can work a granular fertilizer into the soil
  • Do not over-fertilize or the fruits will get stunted
  • Water consistently; put your finger in the soil and when it is dry past the first joint of your finger, it is time to water
  • Inconsistent watering leads to bitter-tasting fruit
  • Water slowly in the morning or early afternoon, avoiding the leaves
  • Mulch to hold in soil moisture
  • If you have limited space or would prefer vertical vines, set up trellises early to avoid damage to seedlings and vines
  • Spray vines with sugar water to attract bees and set more fruit

Cucumber F1 American Black care

  • Choose a sunny site with fertile, well-drained soil with a pH between 6
  • 0 and 6
  • Grow cucumbers in rows or hills spaced 6 feet apart, or try increasing yields by training vines up a vertical trellis
  • Mix a 2-inch layer of rich compost into the planting site, along with a light application of an organic fertilizer
  • Thoroughly water the soil before planting seeds half an inch deep and 6 inches apart
  • When the seedlings have three leaves, thin them to 12 inches apart, which is the spacing you should use if transplanting seedlings
Sunlight Sun/Part Shade
Watering Just keep the soil consistently moist with an inch of water per week (more if temperatures sizzle and rain is scarce). Inadequate or inconsistent moisture causes oddly shaped or poor-tasting fruit.
Soil Ideally, soil should be neutral or slightly alkaline with a pH of 7.0. Improve clay soil by
