Hybrid cucumbers of the form "Self-perfection" can be grown by direct sowing of seeds in the ground, however a higher yield can be obtained using the seedling method:
- to obtain high-quality seedlings of high-yielding plants, the seeds should first be decontaminated, and then soaked for a day in a solution of growth stimulants;
- Seeds prepared for sowing should be sown in the last ten days of March or early April;
- for growing it is very convenient to use special peat pots of standard sizes, which should be filled with high-quality soil mixture;
- seeds should be sown to a depth of 1.5-2 cm, and then wait for emergence of seedlings subject to a temperature regime of 25 ° C.
Seedlings are planted in the ground only when the threat of a drop in temperature to negative indicators has completely passed. The age of seedlings for planting in the soil should be 22-25 days, and the plants themselves should have 3-4 real leaflets. Seedlings are recommended to be planted under standard temporary film shelters.
It is advisable to sow cucumbers with seeds in a soil heated to 15 ° С. As a rule, such a temperature regime is observed in late May. The seed placement depth should not exceed 1.5-2 cm. Crops must be covered with a film. When planting, it is recommended to follow the scheme with a distance between plants of 60 x 15 cm.
In order to increase the survival rate of all plants transplanted to a permanent place, as well as to form the most powerful and healthy root system in them, seedlings after planting, it is recommended to spill "under the root" first with warm and clean water, and then with a solution based on the drug "Radifarma".
Comprehensive care for cucumbers "Perfectness itself" includes pinching, weeding, watering, feeding and tying cucumber lashes on trellises. Cucumbers of the described variety are not too whimsical, but for full fruiting need to create the following conditions:
- the root system of cucumbers is not too large, therefore it is very convenient when adding this vegetable crop to add organics locally - to the planting holes or furrows;
- the optimum temperature conditions necessary for the normal development and fruiting of cucumbers are 23-28 ° C;
- to maintain stable soil moisture in the ridges planting cucumbers, it is advisable to mulch with organic materials;
- watering is carried out with warm water in the evening hours, and their quantity and volume completely depend on indicators of soil moisture;
- complex fertilizers must be used for top dressing Amofoska, Azofoska or "Nitrogen-phosphorus-potash";
- to protect plants from pests will allow the use of highly effective agents such as Actellik and Confidor
- preventive spraying against diseases is carried out "Topaz", "Quadrice" or "The gates."
It is impossible to prevent the overgrowth of the side shoots, as well as their interweaving. Long lateral shoots form ovaries that turn yellow and dry out. With a thickened planting, the formation of a nettle on the side shoots is often observed.

Reviews of vegetable growers
Cucumbers "Self perfection" always differ very favorably from most nearby growing varieties and hybrids with high and friendly yields. And all the other indicators of such a hybrid form are also at the proper height: cucumbers form thin-skinned, insanely tasty. Reviews about the hybrid say that ripe green greens are good both salty and pickled. They do not become pot-bellied even when they outgrow, and fruiting is observed on cucumber lashes up to the very frosts.

When growing this hybrid form, it is very important to remember that in cold and cloudy weather, plant growth slows down, and the root system ceases to actively absorb any introduced nutrient components. For this reason, it is not recommended to feed cucumber bushes in such weather. But regular and frequent harvesting, judging by the reviews of most vegetable growers, promotes abundant and long fruit production, and also greatly slows down the aging process of the plant and is guaranteed to increase the overall yield.
