Approaches to growing:
If you combine greenhouse with outdoor or 'ridge' (although they no longer need to be grown on one) cucumbers, they can be adding crunch to your salads and sandwiches from the end of May until early October. Gherkins are small and warty and bred to be picked small but are otherwise the same as outdoor varities. They all need a fertile, moist but well-drained soil, a sunny position and, for the outdoor varieties, protection from winds.
