Where to sow
Sow February to May 1cm deep in seed compost.  Keep warm - 21c

What next
Once they have formed 3 true leaves pot up into 15cm pots.  When they are about 10cm tall, harden off and plant out into their growing position.  Cucumbers like to have support.  Tie in as they grow.  Keep well watered but avoid getting the leaves wet and provide good ventilation.

Top tip
Sow seeds on their edge to prevent them rotting.
