Cucumbers grow best in the garden, but can still grow well in pots. They like to spread, so if you’re short on space, it’s best to train vines to grow up on a trellis.
Keep moist always, as drying out may cause bitterness in cucumbers.
Failure to set fruit is often due to cold weather or the absence of pollinators, such as bees. You can hand pollinate to help – simply pick a male flower (the smaller yellow flower without fruit forming at the base) and touch it lightly onto the centre stem of the female flower.
