A reliable ridge variety that produces large crops, Marketmore is a favourite for a reason. Suitable for indoor or outdoor growing, it’s a great fit for any space and produces fruit that can be eaten small, or left to develop into full size cucumbers.
Number of seeds per pack: 10
Indoor Growing Instructions:
- Cucumber seeds should be sown on their sides to prevent rotting. Sow indoors 1cm (1/2in) deep in pots or trays of seed compost and cover with a clear lid then keep at around 20 °C.
- Seeds will usually germinate in 7-21 days. Keep compost moist but not wet.
- Once seedlings appear remove the cover and grow on in warm conditions.
- Grow on in a greenhouse or transplant outside once all risk of frost has passed. Final spacing of plants should be 60cm (24in) apart.
Outdoor Growing Instructions:
- Sow seeds outdoors from May on their sides 1cm (1/2in) deep in rows 20cm (8in) apart. Cover with compost and water in.
- As seedlings develop thin or transplant to 60cm (24in) spacing.
- Plants will need supports such as stakes or frames as they grow.
Sow indoors: February - April
