Cucumbers need a lot of organic matter and steady supply of water with full sun for better crop. Fill the space where you like to grow cucumbers with lot of organic manure for several inches thick. Grow trellised plants 8 to 12 inches apart. Hills with one or two seedlings should be spaced about 3 feet apart, with rows 4 to 5 feet apart. When grown on open space, leave a space of 3 feet apart in all directions. Level the soil before sowing the seeds so that it can be watered evenly. After the vines develop runners and the first flowers appear, follow up with a side dressing of compost, aged manure, or organic fertilizer. If the leaves turn yellow it lacks nitrogen. More water and rich mineral produce a healthy fruit.
