About a month before the first expected frost, pinch off new blossoms to promote the maturation of any remaining fruit before the end of the season. 55 Cucumbers have been grown in India for more than 3,000 years. The Romans also loved them, Virgil wrote about them, and in 1494, Columbus brought their seeds to Haiti to plant. Sow indoors in spring, 2?3 weeks before last frost, 1/2?1 inch deep; or direct sow 7?10 days after last frost. Space 18 inches apart if trellised. If planted in mounds, space 3 feet apart in rows 3 feet apart. Allow several plants per mound. Use row covers to help protect plants against unexpected cool weather; remove when flowers appear to allow pollination. Sow again in summer for extended harvest. 0 Mulch to suppress weeds and maintain soil moisture.
