Idea & Tips: Since cucumbers love heat, they can follow cool-season crops, like spinach and lettuce.
The use of mulch can speed up growth by conserving soil moisture, maintaining a high soil temperature.
Water deeply once a week, applying at least one inch of water.
Apply an all-purpose, vegetable garden fertilizer when your plant begins to set fruit.
When planning the garden, consider growing cucumbers vertically on a trellis, fence or other support.
