The Miracle-Gro® Gro-ables® Cucumber Seed Pod™ is biodegradable, which means the roots can grow freely through and get established in the surrounding soil.  The outer shell also helps protect the seed by retaining moisture and contains a 6 month controlled release feed, that provides the nutrients it needs to help establish strong roots and the strength to germinate.

How to Plant Cucumber Gro-able Seed Pod

Do not plant outside until risk of frost has passed. For an earlier harvest, start growing indoors 6-8 weeks before transplanting.

  1. Remove the lid completely.
  2. Choose a sunny spot.
  3. Simply push the seed pod into loosened soil or compost (growing bag or large pot filled with Miracle-Gro Enriched Compost) until the pod is level with the soil surface. DO NOT cover, the seeds are at just the right depth to grow.
  4. Space seed pods 30cm apart.
  5. Water daily.
  6. If more than one seed germinates remove all but one when they reach 5cm tall.
  7. Feed every 14 days with Miracle-Gro® Gro Your Own Vegetable & Fruit Concentrated Liquid Plant Food (or a fertiliser high is potash) when fruits are visible.

What to Expect When Growing Cucumbers

Cucumber Gro-ables® germinate in about 10 days.

Typically, you can begin harvesting after 65 days of growth.

How to Get a Better Crop of Cucumbers

The best way to grow Cucumbers is in a greenhouse, although this is difficult to do, indoor varieties produce fruits similar to those purchased in the supermarket.

Before planting out, prepare the soil by adding plenty of well-rotted manure/compost.

If growing outdoors in a vegtable bed, train your plants to grow up a support, this will help keep the plant off the ground and stop slugs getting to them and eating them.
