Care Guide

Good disease/pest resistance

Marketmore is particularly good at resisting common cucumber problems such as Powdery Mildew. However, Powdery Mildew can still be a problem along with other cucumber pests and diseases such as 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

Water Regularly

Full sun in a sheltered positionMORE

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 Regularly

As soon as the plant begins to produce flowers then start feeding them every fortnight with a high potash feed such as organic liquid tomato feed.MORE

Some required

Once the plant has produced around 10 leaves you should prune off the growing tip so the plant can direct energy towards growing fruit.MORE
