  • Sowing pattern - 50x30 cm.
  • Sowing is recommended to a depth of 3-4 cm, spouts up.

  • Organic fertilizers should be added to the wells before sowing. This can be compost, poultry droppings, or manure.
  • After sowing, cover the bed with a non-woven material. It is very convenient to water through it. The soil will not erode, and the seedlings will be provided with moisture and oxygen.
  • From the moment of germination, the intensity of watering must be reduced, since too much moisture harms the cucumbers.

  • After planting and before the end of fruiting, it is advisable to make 4–5 dressings with mineral mixtures or organic fertilizers.
