cucumbers PIC
« on: July 05, 2012, 16:48 »
what do i do now if anything?
ive grown courgettes so i presume these are much the same, but i didnt do anything with the courgettes!
do i need to support them or just let them ground crawl?
i read you need to nip out the top when there are 8 leaves on the plant.
variety is a ridge outdoor type but im keeping them in the greenhouse.
i feed once or twice a week.

these 2 take all my time, whatever is left the veggies get, poor hubby is at the end of the queue.

You have the choice let'em sprawl or let'em climb (help them by tying in if the need it)

Make sure that you have doors and windows open as much as possible to let the insects in for pollination :)
