    Last year I used grew cucs in 10ltr pots and set them upon self-watering matting with a reservoir they seemed to do fine so I'll be doing the same thing this year.

    I grew a cucumber in a potato grow bag in my little tunnel last year



    It did very well.
    I've also heard of growing them I a grow bag. With the grow bag sat on the narrow end so it's like a deep pot.

    I like a slightly bigger pot than MFBs for cucs but I have no reasons why...............
