Organic Cucumber: Spacemaster 80 Planting Instructions:
Cucumbers do not transplant well, so it is best to direct sow the seeds. Plant seeds in full sun, 1/2 inch deep and 3" apart, in groups of 4 to 6 plants per hill. Space the hills 3 to 4' apart. When the plants are 1 to 2" tall, thin the seedlings to 3 per hill. Cucumbers really thrive in heat and are vulnerable to even light frost. If the temperatures drop, cover the seedlings. Mulch to control weeds and retain moisture once the plants are established.

Organic Cucumber: Spacemaster 80 Harvesting Instructions:

Slicing cucumbers are ready for harvest when 6 to 8" long. If you are harvesting cucumbers for pickling, the fruit should be 3 to 5" long. Cucumbers are at their best -the most tender and flavorful - when they are harvested young, before their seeds fully develop. Cut the fruit from the vine to avoid damaging the plant.
