Description

Reap the benefits of grafted vegetables! Top fruiting varieties are grafted onto more vigorous rootstocks to produce the best possible crops. These vigorous plants produce a huge increase in yields over a longer cropping season, with better tolerance to pests and diseases.

Our Cucumber Grafted Duo are superb greenhouse varieties with excellent mildew resistance. The long fruits of ‘Dominica’ are perfect for slicing into sandwiches, while the bite-sized fruits of ‘Mini Stars’ can be added to lunch boxes as a healthy snack. Height: 3m (9’). Spread: 45cm (18").

  • Duo comprises 1 plant each of:
  • Cucumber ‘Dominica’ - All female variety producing dark, glossy green, 35cm long cucumbers.
  • Cucumber ‘Mini Stars’ – All female variety producing smooth and crisp, 8-10cm, 'snack-sized' cucumbers.

How to Grow

T&M's easy starter plants are delivered ready for planting at the correct time so that you can enjoy bigger, earlier and tastier vegetables. Greenhouse cucumbers must be grown in a warm, humid greenhouse with a minimum temperature of 15C (60F). Outdoor (Ridge) types are suitable for growing outside. Some varieties may be suited to indoor and outdoor cultivation.


Pot up young plants and grow them on until they are large enough to be transplanted. Maintain a minimum temperature of 15c (60F) and keep the compost moist but not wet.


When cucumber plants are well grown, transplant them at a spacing of 2 plants per growbag or 45cm (18") apart in a warm, humid greenhouse. Outdoor varieties should be gradually acclimatised to outdoor conditions over 7-10 days before transplanting into warm, well drained, humus rich soil in full sun, with shelter from winds. Plant outdoor cucumbers in single rows at a distance of 90cm (36") apart. Water well after planting until cucumber plants are fully established.

More Info

Water cucumber plants regularly. Apply greenhouse shading as required and create a humid atmosphere by regularly spraying or damping down pathways.


Climbing greenhouse types will produce higher yields if allowed to climb. Train the main shoots onto 1.8m (6ft) high nets, canes or strings until they reach the top of their support and then pinch out the growing point. Pinch out sideshoots once fruit begins to develop, leaving two leaves after each fruit. Remove male flowers from greenhouse types.


Outdoor ridge types can be pinched out at the main stem after 7 leaves have formed to encourage sideshoots. Outdoor ridge types require pollination by insects - do not remove male flowers from these varieties.


When growing cucumbers, harvest regularly to encourage, long continuous production. Pick the fruits whilst young and tender before they show signs of producing seeds, as older fruits can become bitter. Harvesting cucumbers is best done early in the morning when temperatures remain cool.
