Can be difficult to grow
Sow seed 1.5cm deep on their sides in pots. Transplant into large pots.
Ventilate greenhouse and spray floor with water to keep air humid. Tie side shoots to wire/net and remove growing tips two leaves beyond each fruit.
Cut green cucumbers when a reasonable size and the sides have grown parallel. Remove yellow fruits as these are over-ripe and will stop plant producing further fruit.
