Mr Fothergills Cucumber Esmarald 20 Seeds

£2.35

Cucumber - Esmarald

This is a predominantly 'female' variety with disease resistance, ensuring better crops of delicious cucumbers. It’s an improvement on the very popular outdoor variety 'Marketmore', perfect for the garden and large patio containers.

Sow indoors for surest results from February to April, 0.5cm deep, on the seed’s edge, in small pots of compost. Water well and place in a warm position. A temperature of 21-24°C is ideal. Keep moist. Seedlings usually appear in 7-14 days. When plants have developed 3 or 4 leaves, transplant to 12cm pots and grow on in cooler, but not cold conditions. Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions, before planting out 60cm apart, during May/June, into fertile, well-drained soil. Or sow outdoors from May to June, for ease, where they are to crop. Sow two seeds per position, 0.5cm deep, directly into finely-prepared, fertile, well-drained soil, which has already been watered. Allow 60cm between rows. When large enough, thin to leave the stronger plant. Harvest from July to October.
