Garden Tips To Plant Cucumber

Cucumbers prefer rich, fertile soil, so dig in plenty of well-rotted organic matter such as compost before planting. If you're growing your cucumbers upwards using supports such as trellis, set plants at about 18 inches (45cm) apart.

The preferred method of cucumber planting is direct seeding in the garden after the soil has warmed as the seeds will not germinate in a soil chillier than 60 degrees. Just push two or three cucumber seeds an inch into the soil, spacing the plantings 18 to 36 inches apart.

Two plants to avoid planting near cucumbers are melons and potatoes. Sage is not recommended as a companion plant near cucumbers either. While sage shouldn't be planted near cucumbers, oregano is a popular pest control herb and will do well as a companion plant.
