Cucumber seedling

Hello,
The other day I was given a cucumber seedling for my birthday. I left it for a few days outside, then popped it in a big pot of compost.
However I now see it is too early to pot out cucumbers! What shall I do?
It is currently raised up on a bench next to the hot air duct from the utility room. The warmest place I could find in the garden!
We don't have a greenhouse proper, but have a plastic screened tool place at the side of the house. It doesn't get much light though.
The other option is a glass cloche/mini greenhouse type thing, though it is a big too short for the pot, so I would have to raise it on bricks and leave a big gap at the bottom.
Or I could get a plastic cloche and leave it where it is.
I live in London (UK) with a south(ish) facing garden. As you can prob tell I am a very novice gardener!

It needs as much sun as you can get it. Soil temp should be about 70-80F (21-27C). You want a 5-10-10 (more or less) fertilizer, I would prefer organic. Do a google search for an "organic fertilizer 5-10-10", or check with a reputable nursery near you.
