Do you need to pinch out cucumber plants?
Pinch out the end of each side shoot once the fruit begins to develop, leaving two leaves after each fruit. This helps to encourage more sideshoots, which will produce bigger crops of cucumbers.
Do cucumbers like a lot of sun?
Site selection. Although cucumbers do best in loose sandy loam soil, they can be grown in any well-drained soil. Cucumbers must be grown in full sunlight. Because their roots reach 36 to 48 inches deep, do not plant them where tree roots will rob them of water and nutrients.
