Cucumbers need a rich soil that does not dry out, and has a pH of above 6.5. Seeds sprout readily at soil temperatures of 20 degrees. Cucumbers thrive when grown up a trellis or teepee. Choose a well ventilated, sunny spot for your cucumbers, as they are prone to moulds and mildew in humid, still weather. Pick your cucumbers regularly as soon as they are an edible size to encourage new flowers and fruit.
