PACKET LABEL INSTRUCTIONS: Dislikes cold soil. Sow in flats 2-3 weeks after last frost, when soil is warm. Prefers light soil with well-rotted manure or compost worked in. Needs ample food and water. Mulch or cultivate until vines form. Grow on fence or trellis to save space. Cucumbers love heat but don't actually like full sun all day - it can make them bitter. They do best with morning sun and shade from the mid-day sun - try the east side of a tomato bed, or house.
