Cucumber
The taste of a home grown cucumber will outclass the shop brought ones – fresh from the garden to your salads and sandwiches in one short and quick journey. Many of our varieties grow happily outdoors but the ‘all female’ varieties (Diva, Passandra and Sweet Success) are best gown on their own in a greenhouse. Start all cucumber seeds inside in early April.
