I want to grow a big green cucumber on the windowsill. Where to start?
In order to grow cucumbers on the windowsill, first purchase self-pollinated varieties. Unless, of course, you want to pollinate them yourself. Best suited are such as F1 Window-balcony, F1 Gift of the East, F1 Catherine, F1 Marathon, F1 Faust. For the first time, select shade-hardy varieties that are not afraid of temperature extremes. Take care of additional lighting in advance, especially in winter. Next, purchase ready-made soil and a container for planting in the store, which should be large enough.
