- Seeded Pot
Customers will receive an already prepared starter pot. Soil and seed arrive premixed, so startup just requires access to sunlight and regular watering. Containers are designed to allow easy transplantation to the garden when sufficient growth has been achieved.
- Compact Size
Cucumbers usually grow on vines that can quickly become unruly as they spread in unpredictable directions. This product is designed to produce a tree-like plant that grows straight up into the air. It can fit into a variety of tight spaces, making the plant an ideal option for people without much garden space available.
- High Quality Produce
Homegrown cucumbers can often take on a strange, curved shape that makes the produce hard to prepare and visually unappealing. This product grows Orient Express cucumbers, a variety that traditionally develops to be straight, long ( up to twelve inches ) and tasty.
Startup can be the most time consuming and energy draining step in growing plants. Such projects usually require digging, hauling dirt, hand seeding, substrate mixing and more. The Cucumber Orient Express arrives with the seed and soil in place. It just needs access to sun and regular watering to get started.
How It Works
The prepared starter kit helps users of this product to start growing cucumber plants at home without having to go through a complicated setup process. It is designed to allow the plant to get a healthy start when provided with enough sunlight and water. Enough space is provided to accommodate a significant amount of growth so that the tree can be easily transplanted to an outdoor area without the risk of damaging a tiny plant.
- Plentiful Harvest
Cucumber Orient Express comes with the materials to support three starter plants ( six when counting the bonus offer ). A tree can grow taller than an average person and will produce a renewable batch of cucumbers that could be as long as twelve inches each.
- Ready Quickly
With proper care, the cucumbers produced by these plants will be ready for first harvest after a period of approximately eight weeks. Subsequent production may occur as quickly as four to six weeks following a harvest.
- Bonus Items
Customers who purchase this product will receive a two-for-one type of deal. The original Cucumber Orient Express is a set of three prepared starter plants, but the order will automatically be upgraded to include an additional three plants for an extra shipping and handling fee.
Tips & Tricks
- Impact of Climate
Anyone considering cucumbers as a garden addition should be aware of the weather requirements for growth. Like many other fruit producing plants, the cucumber will not grow well outside of a certain range of temperatures ( about 60 to 90 Fahrenheit ) and requires a frost-free period of several weeks to reach harvest. It is recommended that the ground be allowed three to four weeks following the last spring frost to warm up sufficiently before transplanting.
- Watch for Bugs
Cucumber plants are prone to infestations from aphids and the aptly named cucumber beetle. Customers should keep a watch on their plants for these invaders, especially after transplantation, and take the appropriate actions when necessary. Small numbers of pests can usually be controlled with water spritzing, but more severe infestations may require chemical treatments.
