About

Cucumbers belong to the same family as melons and squash, and are technically a fruit.

Cucumbers have both anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, and also contain high amounts of a group of phytonutrients called cucurbitacins, which have anti-cancer benefits. Their high moisture content makes them good for rehydrating the body.

    Lettuce prefers cool conditions and can be planted as soon as the soil can be worked in spring. Best growth occurs at 16-18 degrees Celsius. Sow seed 0.3cm deep, firm soil and cover lightly as some light is required for germination. Sow indoors 3-4 weeks before your transplant date. Outdoors space plants 21cm apart in rows 30-45 cm apart. Continue to sow every 3 weeks throughout the seasons for a continuous supply of fresh greens. Many lettuce varieties will not germinate at temperatures over 24 degrees Celsius. Sow seed in a shaded location mid-summer. Some varieties do well in the unheated winter greenhouse.
