Sow singly on edge in pots under glass at 18-21°C (65-70°F) February-May. Pot on plants into large pots (about 25cm [10"] size) or plant them out in a frame or greenhouse. Do not plant in cold frames until May. Maintain night temperature of 16-24°C (60-75°F). Remove male flowers leaving the female ones (distinguished by swelling on the stem behind the petals) from which cucumbers will be produced. 'All-Female' varieties produce virtually 100% female flowers. Harvest July-September.
