Average disease/pest resistance
The most common cucumber problems include Whitefly, Cucumber Mosaic Virus, and Aphids. The best protection against these scourges is to try and prevent too much humidity on the leaves by watering in the morning and preventing splashing from the soil to the leaves. Also planting companion plants such as Marigolds will attract predators such as ladybirds and hoverflies which will eat the pests. See below for a description of each problem.MORE

Full sun in a sheltered position
Cucumber plants need 6-8 hours of direct sunlight every day. If possible, plant in a sheltered location, or even in a greenhouse, protected against chilling winds as the plant will prefer consistently warm temperatures to produce fruit.MORE
Fertile, well-draining soil
A good-mix to use is three parts quality compost to one part topsoil.MORE
Feed every plant with a feed such as liquid seaweed to promote growth.
