they can be a bit picky with light too – light but not direct sunlight. And as marty says, well away from a draft …. which is why you need to be careful abotu where you buy them from! Cut flowers and pot plants by the drafty supermarket door anyone?? <<< just dont buy them, they will not last!
I was just about to post about my bumper cucumber harvest, then I saw this thread. I would receommnd keeping them above the ground (so in a pot) this helps with pests and temperature control. They are so much more delicious than the supermarket offerings!!!
