What you can plant cucumbers in a greenhouse depends on the needs and tastes of the plants. Cucumber likes a warm and humid atmosphere, frequent watering, does not tolerate drafts. Therefore, his neighbors in the transparent "house" should also be heat-loving.
The best candidates for neighbors
Cucumbers are grown on a compost or dung bed, because they are very fond of nitrogenous fertilizers. Therefore, all the representatives of legumes will be wonderful companions for green crops:
String cultures have nodules on their roots with specific bacteria that saturate the soil with nitrogen, improving it.
The best neighbor for a green vegetable is asparagus beans, which not only actively "share" with nitrogen, but also loosen the soil.
Legumes are recommended to be planted between cucumbers as a compactor. This will help to use the area rationally, and to enrich the soil, and to increase the yield of cucumbers through nitrogenous feeding.
It has a beneficial effect on the growth and yield of cucumbers, corn: it creates around itself the microclimate necessary for the normal growth of the vegetable.
And if you use high grades of a grain crop as a compactor, planting it between the beds, you can wrap cucumber wattles on strong corn stalks, thereby replacing the trellis. As a similar support for the shoots, it is good to use sunflower, which does not harm the vegetable.
To increase the yield of crispy vegetables, you can sow calendula beds around the beds. Flower smell will attract insect pollinators.
If you plant dill next to a vegetable crop, it will, on the contrary, scare off pests and parasites with its sharp smell.
It is recommended to plant sweet peppers in the same greenhouse along with the cucumber. This culture is also heat and moisture-loving.
You should only make sure that the higher climbing vegetable does not obscure the sunlight to the pepper. Remarkably tolerate the conditions created for cucumber, other different cultures:
- early beets;
- Chinese cabbage;
- turnip sheet.
Cucumber is well compatible with white cabbage, kohlrabi, onions, lettuce, beetroot. Neutral to the cucumber neighborhood such garden plants: strawberries, leeks, carrots, parsnips, celery, garlic, spinach, grapes. Also, cucumber is indifferent to all cruciferous representatives (except radish and radish).
It is strongly not recommended to plant cucumbers in the same greenhouse with tomatoes.
Green vegetables like stuffy, warm and humid space, need frequent watering and a small amount of fertilizer. And tomatoes, on the contrary, need frequent airing and abundant fertilizing with fertilizer.
But if you still had to plant a wobbling vegetable next to a golden apple, then it is better to cover the cucumber beds with a special cloth during ventilation, protecting them from drafts. At the same time, tomatoes should be planted closer to the window leaf or door.
Strangely enough, but the potato inhibits the growth of cucumbers, so it is also better to plant it somewhere else. A bad company will be composed of such fragrant herbs:
The fact is that the strong sharp smell of greenery reduces the yield of the vegetable. Feel bad cucumber and next to the radish. There is a possibility that the proximity to radish can also reduce the yield of cucumber.
To get a high yield of cucumber in the greenhouse, you need to correctly pick up his neighbors. Such plants should be similar growing conditions and maintenance requirements.
