I have been planting a little garden for the past six years. I think of it as being a little experimental…just happy when things actually grow and we have fresh veggies to eat.
Every year the cucumbers were vining all over the place. There was really nowhere for them to go but into the flower beds. It was hard to tell if there were even cucumbers on the vines! So, I am sharing my tip for Small Space Gardening – Grow Cucumbers On A Trellis! I did this last year, and it worked so well I did it again this year.
This is very simple. Buy an inexpensive trellis at your local garden center and when the cucumber plants begin to vine, start training them to grow up the trellis.
I tuck the leaves behind or around the trellis, and before you know it the tentacles (probably not what they are really called) have grabbed onto the trellis and secure the plant in place!
The cucumbers are absolutely delicious…better than any bought in a store! So easy to grow!
