I have never grown 'National Pickling Cucumbers' before. I want to plant them against a trellis system and was wondering if anyone knew how tall and wide they get(the plant that is)?

Does anyone else trellis their cucumbers?

I plant mine on a six foot trellis. I've never grown that variety though.

tamara,

Last year we put up 4 posts and stringed them all together with plastic thread.. The cukes grew right up..
But not your brand .. We use whatever is available.
I make cuke relish, and bread and butter cukes. Some sweet last year.........

[kitty] Just do it .. You learn by doing.

hey i baught some 4' tall tomatoe pyramids. they are in the shape of a triangle. . similar to the same function as a cage yet it has the 3 sides (not circular obviously) These three sides will come apart easily, and fold down to being 4'x1' for storage. When expanded this works great! You now have a 52"x4'tall trellis made of painted metal! I make a W shape out of it for added support instead of being one straight line. I PLAN on putting 4 plants on 1 trellis. . . this maybe overload i'll see and let you know [Smile]

BTW these can be baught at Home Depot. Tomato Pyramid is what it was called in the outdoor garden center. (right same place as tomato cages!)
