Answer: Most cucumbers are vining plants and can be grown on a trellis. The trellis needs to provide a mesh framework rather than merely upright as with a teepee. You could use something like a wire fence with large openings or the large opening nylon netting sold for garden trellis. Alternatively you can grow them on the flat but place a good thick layer of straw beneath them as mulch; this also keeps them off the soil.
