Fresh, light and tasty, cucumbers are the perfect ingredient to throw into your summer salads, dip with tzatziki or thinly slice for sandwiches. With all these dishes and more, why not grow your own? You’ll have a constant supply over the warmer months and you’ll be as cool as a cucumber sharing your harvest with family and friends. They don’t need a lot of room to grow either – you can train them to grow on a trellis, fence or tripod to help save space.
