Cucumber, Cucamelon & Gherkin Seeds
Cucumbers should be sown indoors early or mid-spring, then plant out late spring or early summer. Choose fertile, well-drained soil in full sun.
Cucamelons such as 'Mexican Gherkin' are grown like a regular cucumber and produces a mass of bitesize fruits that are great for kids packed lunches.
Gherkins are easy to grow and delicious with salads and cold meats. Sow indoors from mid-April or outdoors from the end of May after the last frosts.
