Cucumber Bella Thompson & Morgan

£4.49

‘Bella’ is an all female cucumber that produces vigorously growing plants, featuring heavy crops of long and slightly ribbed fruits. High quality, this variety has wonderful colouring and flavour with no bitter aftertaste. They have a good tolerance to powdery mildew and are one of the most reliable cucumber varieties for unheated greenhouses.

If growing in a greenhouse, the greenhouse must be warm to humid with a minimum temperature of 15C.

Sow your cucumber seeds from early March to April for indoor cropping. Sow your cucumber seeds on their side at a depth of 1cm in 7.5cm pots with free-draining seed compost. Place in a propagator or seal inside a polythene bag at a temperature of 20C until germination which will take 7-10 days. Protect any emerging seedlings from direct sunlight to avoid scorching. Keep the compost moist but not wet.

When grown transplant them at a spacing of 45cm apart in a warm and humid greenhouse or conservatory.

Height: 150cm

Spread: 50cm
