Cucumber - Telegraph
The gardeners choice, Telegraph is the nearest old variety to a glasshouse type. It produces medium-long, dark green fruits. It can be grown outside, under glass, polythene tunnels or in a cold frame.
Sow from February to May. Sow seed on its edge to prevent rotting, 1.5cm deep in individual 9cm pots, under glass at a constant day and night temperature of 21°C. As soon as the seedlings have formed 3 true leaves, transplant into 15cm pots. When the plants are about 10cm tall, plant out into final positions into large pots or growbags under glass. Provide some form of support and tie in stems as required. Male flowers (those with no fruit behind) should be removed as soon as they appear. Ready to harvest from July to September.
