Has anyone tried using their mini greenhouse to grow cucumbers?

I am about to lose the use of my cucumber greenhouse as the owners are selling up and moving away. Is it possible to grow them in my mini greenhouse instead and has anyone tried it successfully?



Haven't used one but I guess if you use 'ridge cucumber' variety you should have some success as they can stand cooler conditions!

Thanks Teegee, I might give it a go then.

Thanks Bilbo, a very comprehensive answer. Did you grow them straight into the ground or put them in a grow bag? I shall give it a go next Spring.

Thanks once again. That's how I grew my tomatoes but alas I shall have to consider a grow bag for them from now on out in the garden.
