Last chance for the cucumber
As I've already written, I have a classic love/hate relationship with the cucumber. After lots of failed attempts to grow a respectable crop, I'm giving the cucumber one last chance this year. And this year, I'm taking a two-pronged approach: I'm growing the cucumber myself from seed and I'm buying a cultivated plant from the garden centre as well.
But let's talk about growing it from seed first. I've bought a basic set for this. This contains four plastic pouches, compacted soil and seeds (tomato, pepper and, of course, cucumber as well).
