Planting by Zones

Zones 9-10

  • Cucumbers are easily direct sown or transplanted. This warm-season crop should be grown when soils are at a minimum temperature of 70°F (21°C).

Zones 2-8

  • Start 3-4 weeks before transplanting. Soil should be warm, and overnight temperatures should not drop below 60 degrees (15°C) for the happiest plants.

Planting Tendergreen Cucumber Seeds

  • Seeds are very easy to direct sow. For Zones 9 and 10, sow seeds in deeply irrigated soils to guarantee even and quick germination. Plant seeds 6″ (15cm) apart.
  • Fertilize regularly with an organic liquid fertilizer once seedlings have germinated and are about 4″  (10cm) tall.
  • Transplant out when plants are 5-6″ (13-15cm) tall and healthy. Space at least 6″ (15cm) apart.

Succession planting Tendergreen Cucumber

  • Plant every 21 days for continuous crop to harvest.

Growing Cucumber

  • Cucumbers enjoy warm temperatures, good fertility, and consistent moisture. For Zones 9 and 10, this means frequent watering or running irrigation. DO NOT overhead water as this promotes disease—water at the base of the plant.
  • Side-dress with a granular organic fertilizer if you believe your soil has low fertility.
  • Except for some bush varieties, you will need a trellis for support. If space is limited, use trellising to maximize space and keep your garden area tidy. Practicing good garden hygiene will prevent diseases.
  • Our blog has additional information on growing cucumbers vertically and on pruning cucumbers!

Growing Cucumber in Containers

  • Cucumber can be planted in a container but should be in a large container with good soil. Cucumbers need regular moisture to be happy, and containers dry out very quickly in the heat of Zones 9 and 10. Be sure to mulch heavily and add compost to your container to retain moisture between waterings.

Harvesting Cucumber

  • Harvest small for maximum production and the best flavor, about 15-18 days after pollination. Check your plants every 2-3 days for more fruit. There is always one hiding! Leaving several ripe cucumbers on the plant will take away the energy needed to develop more fruit.
