Last year I won a packet of Mini Munch cucumbers in a competition run by Jo over at The Good Life. We'd always grown the ridge cucumber - Burpless Tasty Green in the past and most years this has done fairly well. I'd always considered that mini cucumbers were tricky to grow and the seed was expensive so a chance to try some for free was such a good opportunity.
We decided to increase our chance of success by giving the plants a bit of protection. Three plants were planted in rings placed on the top of compost filled, large, square tubs and the plants allowed to sprawl about.
The cold frame lid was left open (at the setting shown below) and the plants were fed as we would tomatoes but otherwise given no special treatment. One advantage however was that the 'fruits' would be close at hand to harvest fresh.
