Answer: Cucumbers should be planted at the same soil level as they were growing before. If you set the stem too deeply into the soil it can rot and if you place the root ball at the soil surface it can dry out. So, exactly the same soil level as it was growing before is perfect. This is true for all transplants except tomatoes. Tomato stems can be buried deep into the soil because they naturally develop roots at the leaf scars along the stems. Best wishes with your veggies!
