This is my first year doing cucumbers. Do they need to pruned to one stem like tomatoes or just let them go wild?

Pruning Cucumbers Empty pruning cukes, revisited

Post  squaredeal 1/22/2012, 4:38 pm

pruning cucumbers-see video

I plan to do this this year. I put 2 seeds per square, four squares, and the vines over took my trellis, and later fell down. I did get lots of cukes, but some got "lost" under all the leaves. My community garden neighbors who grew them on the ground didn't harvest any, or very few.

I feel as if I could prune cucumbers easily and identify the growing tip without pulling off all the baby cucs. Of course I would have to have successful cucumber plants to even consider pruning. The cool Coastal PNW climate just does not like those warm weather plants. (maybe that should be the warm weather plants don't like the cool Coastal PNW climate)

That was a great video.

Thanks for the video. I can see I'm going to have to plant a couple of cukes in pots this year so I can take them inside when there are cool nights. Maybe I can get earlier cukes this way. Thanks again.

Long before SFG, I alway planted my cukes along the fence to save space. But I never thought to prune then. I will have to try this.

Great question killjug, and I wouldn't have even known to ask it. Looks like they are very easy to prune to one stem. Yay! I'm going to try it this year! Very Happy

Last summer on a 4ft. wide trellis I had one tomato plant, one or 2 cuke plants, and 3 green beans. All three were repeatedly pruned. In the end the cucumbers produced the least. Green beans produced the most, acting like an invasive beast.

I had little luck with cukes last year. I have a sunnier spot picked out for this year.

After watching the video now I know why my cukes didn't produce as expected. The difference is pruning correctly, your video was great thank you. This year should be much better!
