Growing Cucumbers in Containers?

June 7, 2010

Cucumber plants growing in a container.I would like to plant cucumbers in a container. What kind of container should I use? Should it be big and tall like a 5 gallon bucket or short and small like a dish pan. I am growing the small cukes. Thank you.

I think you could use either one. My neighbor has one of those whiskey barrels and she has a tomato in the center and cukes along the sides of it. She is hoping they will drape over the edge.

In general the more soil you are able to give a veggie plant, the healthier it will be. It is easier to keep large pots from drying out and there are more nutrients available. Remember, if the volume of 2 containers is the same, the one with more surface area will dry out quicker.

If you use the 5-gallon bucket, you can poke one of those wire tomato supports into the soil and train the cucumber up it.
