Planting Rules

Для получения хорошего урожая нужно правильно ухаживать за растениями

To get a good harvest you need to take good care of behind plants

White cucumbers are usually planted in a greenhouse or greenhouse, seedlings or seeds are planted. Although many gardeners are perfectly planting in open ground conditions. The soil for the growth of cucumber bushes should have neutral acidity, and should be loose. The most optimal soil option is a mixture of humus and turf, pine sawdust is also added here. Such a soil will have a loose structure, which will ensure good water passage and prevent its stagnation, and at the same time fungal infections and root rot.

Preparing the seeds

We carefully select the seeds, they must be:

  • without chips;
  • bruises;
  • must not be empty.

To prevent disease, the seeds are soaked before planting in a solution of potassium permanganate.


We plant seeds on seedlings 3 weeks before the onset of heat so that the sprouts do not outgrow. To do this, we take specially prepared boxes or pots that fill the ground and pierce seedlings with seeds at a distance of 4 cm from each other.

Every 3-4 days we water, we monitor the temperature regime. Immediately before planting in open soil, it will be necessary to harden the plant. For a few days, we begin to put the seedlings in a cooler room, and then outside.


For planting, dig holes up to 20 cm between each other and already dig sprouted seedlings or seeds, then watered and mulched. You should also fertilize the ground with chicken droppings or lime, in order to prevent mold. Flaxing with copper sulphate will provide further protection against root rot.

Plant Care

Shrubs do not need special care. It is enough to provide the plant with morning watering once for 4-5 days, the water should be warm. It is important to understand that soil should not be moistened in the afternoon because the plant can get sunburn.Vegetable culture likes high humidity in the air, so you can put a barrel filled with liquid in the middle of the garden, then due to evaporation the plant will get the desired humidity.

Collect the fruits when their size reaches 15 cm, the collection is carried out if necessary, most often, 2 times a week. Ovaries form on the main and lateral shoots. Due to this growth, the plant does not need to form fruit growth. But, if desired, you can pinch the main stem, which will provide new shoot formation and a higher yield.
