How To Grow Gherkins From Seed: Gherkin Hokus can be started indoors from April. Using small pots or a seedling module, sow one seed per cell/pot. When the seedlings are established and frost risk has passed, transplant them to their final spot. This variety is particularly sensitive to frost.

Alternatively, sow directly outside in early May.

Gherkin enjoys heat and will grow best in a greenhouse/polytunnel. It will also benefit if the vines are supported, this helps the fruits to hang, and grow straight.

Start picking the gherkins when they become 5-10 centimetres in length. Frequent harvesting will keep the plant productive.
