On one square meter of the plot where cucumbers are planted, you need at least five liters of water.
As soon as the first ovaries appear, you need to water the seedlings three times a week. Observe this system until the appearance of fruits. At the same time, one square meter of land requires 10 liters of water.
From August and until the last harvest, watering should be reduced. It is enough to moisten the soil once every week and a half. For one square meter - three to four liters of water.
