Urban Bounty Space Master Cucumbers are great for a small urban garden because they only take a third of the space that a traditional vine needs.

Urban Bounty Space Master Cucumber Seed Packets include approximately 30 seeds.  It may not look like many, but this is more than enough for a small garden.

What are Cucumbers

Cucumbers are a bushy and productive vine that can be grown in a courtyard or a large pot.  

Culinary Uses for Cucumbers

Cucumbers are found in so many types of garden and a range of international cuisines from European and Mediterranean to middle eastern.  This variety is great in salads, or you could get adventurous and make a cold cucumber soup with dill and yogurt to garnish.  

Growing Conditions - Space Master Cucumber

This easy care plant likes rich, free draining soil, lots of sun and lots of water. It is best in a sheltered spot that is out of the wind and safe from snap frosts.  Plant in spring, after the last chance of frost.  Even though this is a bushy, space saving variety, your space saver may still require some staking as it grows. 

This vine needs pollination to set fruit, so it is a good idea to plant it near things that attract bees.  While you shouldn't plant cucumbers near sage or potatoes, there are a host of good companion plants, including: marigolds, carrots, radish, dill, onions, garlic and sunflowers. Don't plant cucumbers near sage or potatoes.

      What will postage cost?

      Postage varies by region, and by parcel size/weight. 

      Customers are asked to choose the correct postage option at checkout (urban or rural).

      If you live in the South Island, Waiheke or Great Barrier Island, please contact us for a custom shipping quote: info@urbanbounty.co.nz 

      How often do you dispatch?

      To reduce the risk of plants sitting in a courier depot over weekends, we usually ship orders on a Monday, Tuesday or Thursday (except public holidays).   

      How do you package your products?

      We take extra care to water plants well and drain them before sending.  Plants are shipped in specially designed packaging, designed to reduce the risk of damage in transit. Trees and bushes are securely wrapped in paper to reduce risk of soil escaping during transit.  They are well supported with scrunched up paper to prevent movement during transit.
