Feed with potash fertiliser once fruiting commences.

Sow March-June to grow indoors or April-May for outdoors. Sow seed 13mm (0.5in) deep in 75cm (3in) pots of good seed compost Place in a propagator or seal container in a polythene bag and place at 21-25C (70-77F) until after germination, which usually takes about 7 days. Can also be sown direct outdoors once the soil has warmed and all risk of frost has passed, 2cm (0.25in) deep 90cm (36in) apart and in rows 90cm (36in) apart.

Gradually acclimatise plants to outdoor conditions for a few days before planting out after any risk of frost has passed, 90cm (36in) apart each way. Do not remove the male flowers. Plant in a moist, rich, well drained soil or into Growbags. If growing outdoors allow to trail along the qround or can be supported on netting. If growing under glass ensure no 'all female' varieties being grown to avoid any cross pollination.

Poor value 2016-05-16

Did not try taste yet, but three geminated seeds out of five is a poor result. Every seed cost 60p.

At your earliest convenience please contact our Customer Care Department at ccare@thompson-morgan.com, one of our agents will be more than happy to look into this further for you.

Plenty to pickle! 2014-01-30

Great tasting as cucumber and produced plenty to pickle as well. Will definitely grow again this year but will try outdoors as plants take over the greenhouse!
