I am doing my first garden this year, using mostly containers that are 18"x18" and 14" deep. My original cucumber seeds were slow to sprout so I planted more and now have 6 in a single container. (pic below)
They are suddenly growing very quickly so I'm thinking I need to take some out. My plan was to let them grow out of the container and off the deck onto the lattice that covers the deck.
Will cucumbers grow and be able to hold the fruit growing straight down??
How many plants do you think the container can reasonably support??
