Growing Cucumbers in a Pot
Cucumbers are a great choice for novice and experienced balcony gardeners, as they come in a multitude of varieties and they’re very easy to grow. Similar to tomatoes, you can expect cucumbers to prefer a trellis structure that allows them to vine. If you’re hoping to grow cucumbers in containers for salads and snacks, we recommend opting for slicing and burpless varieties, as these have a slightly longer shelf-life and are best eaten raw. Pickling cucumbers are generally smaller, with thinner skins designed to absorb brine. Ready to learn about growing cucumbers in pots? Check out our beginner’s guide here!
