Cucumber - Perfection, open pollinated (Approx 25) Vegetable Seeds
Cucumber Perfection is an easy to grow and high yield variety, producing large and flavour packed vegetables from Spring to late Summer. Harvest frequently to encourage further growth. If growing in pots, keep well watered and warm, stake the plant to your desired height and cut the trailing tips of the plant, to prevent further upward growth and divery its energy into producing the cucumbers.
To harvest, simply pick once they reach your desired size. Smaller, younger cucumbers are great for pickeling and if left to mature to a larger darker colour, they're great for salads and sandwhiches.
Space around 40cm apart if planting in a plot.
When To Sow - When to Harvest
To ensure the highest rate of germination and to account for the unpredictable British weather, grow these indoors on a warm sun soaked window cill or inside a greenhouse. Once the seedlings are large enough, you can then begin to plant these into pots. If the weather allows, you could also plant directly into your vegetable plot.
Keep well watered and warm, but do not allow for the soil to become consistently soaked. This can cause mould, hinder root development and be detremental to the plants health.
Our Cucumber seeds are open pollinated, meaning they'll go to seed naturally, once matured and you can easily harvest these seeds to grow for future years.
