Cuccumbers and their roots
Hello to fellow gardeners! I'm in Ottawa, Canada, and we've had the most gorgeous May weather this year - sunny and warm/hot almost every day! Unfortunately this means little rain and the ground has become July-dry... Anyway, my question is: because my memory is so great, I can't remember whether my cuccumber plant put down roots when it spread all over my garden last year or just kept the one root. I was considering trying cuccumber in a container somewhere or even up a trellis (inspired by a neighbour who grew a pumpkin up his fence - I think the only difference was that the pumpkin was more oblong than usual). So ya - do cuccumbers put out more than the one root when they spread. Thanks and I love this community! I read it every morning before heading out into the gardens!
