Planting Tips for Heirloom Cucumber:
Soak seeds overnight before planting either individually in rows or hills of 3-6 seeds each. Tighter spacing and higher yields can be achieved through trellising the plants on fences or poles. Continually harvesting will keep the plant producing new fruits.
Heirloom cucumbers do not like acidic soil!
Frost tender. Heirloom cucumbers love warm weather.
To get an earlier heirloom cucumber crop start indoors 3-4 weeks before last frost.
Heirloom cucumbers are thirsty! Never let them go dry. Heirloom cucumbers are over 95 % water.
Fertilize heirloom cucumbers with manures BEFORE planting.
Cucumber beetles are "supposed" to dislike marigolds or wood ashes sprinkled at the base of cucumber vines.
