Growing cucumbers vertically is ideal if you don’t have much room in your vegetable garden plot. Using a planter box that is 8 inches wide, about 2 feet high and 4 feet in length a trellis was added to the back so the cucumbers could grow upwards. This growing method will work great on a patio that receives a lot of sunlight.
This planter box is a small version of a raised garden bed. When planting, space the cucumbers about 6 inches apart. Plant each at an angle from the other plants. Once the plants get tall enough you will have to train them to grow up the trellis. Do this by forcing them in and out of the wire fence.
In just this small raised bed garden there were 14 cucumbers planted. It just goes to show you that you can grow vegetables in small places. Get those cucumber plants in the ground, harvest some cucumbers and eat homegrown vegetables all summer long. You can do this, give it a try and happy gardening.
