How long does a cucumber plant live for before it needs to be taken out of a garden bed?
04 Feb 22 Jacko (Australia - tropical climate)
A cucumber plant will only live until it becomes dead.(i.e. has finished producing fruit) It doesn't need to be taken out, as it will eventually become compost

About 4-5mths or so. Generally the soil will run out of nutrient.
