Here are my top cucumber gardening tips, because every salad needs a home-grown cucumber, and I love making cucumber water and cucumber martinis.
1. You might be wondering, “How much sun do cucumbers need?” Plant them where they will get full sun; at least 8 hours of direct sunlight.
2. Space plants 3’ apart and rows 4-5’ apart and make sure they have plenty of good drainage. Cucumbers need uncrowded space to grow, and it helps keep the pests at bay as well.
