Growing cucumbers in your greenhouse can be a challenge for the first year but once you start to learn what the different varieties of cucumbers need and how to live with their crazy vines in the greenhouse you will benefit from the vegetables during the months when your outdoor gardens are covered with snow.
Cucumbers are one of your warmer greenhouse vegetables, which mean that your nighttime temperature in the greenhouse should not go below forty-five degrees in order for your cucumbers to really thrive. There may be a few days in between where the temperature dips down a little which is ok but try to keep the night time temperature over forty five degrees for the best results. Read the packages that you choose, there are even some types of cucumbers that will require you to keep the temperature about fifty degrees.
During the winter growing season in the greenhouse your cucumbers will require different tasks to be completed than your cucumbers might in your outdoor garden. Cucumbers in the greenhouse will need less water. They will grow slowly and the over watering of cucumbers will rot their vines and leaves. You will also need to prune cucumbers in order to get them strong enough to produce vegetables.
Some of the most well known cucumbers that you can grow in the greenhouse include Lantana Tree, Hoya, Bougainvillea, Hibiscus and the Fern. Happy eating!
