Homeowner Growing Tips: Water deeply and fertilize regularly, as cucumbers are heavy feeders. Try to water at the soil level rather than using an overhead sprinkler to reduce mildew. Grow on a trellis or fence to save garden space. Harvest when fruit is young for best taste. Do not divide the plants that come in one pot--grow together on a small hill or mound in the garden, or in one large container.
