The big surpriser, chew one of the modest looking leaves and wow - a cucumber explosion! Great in salads, with beans and in summery drinks. Handily the leaves will keep growing throughout the winter - so you can pretend it's summer all year round.
Grow in sun or partial shade, can be kept indoors. Keep well trimmed to about 15cm and remove flowers to produce a regular supply of fresh leaves.
Single herb plant in a 15cm Italian terracotta pot, with a matching saucer. Planted in a peat-free compost mix with added vermiculite for extra drainage.
