Update to my querying:

I bought Sweetheart and Avalon seeds both of which germinated and I got two Sweetheart and three Avalon plantlet's. I planted the Sweethearts in the greenhouse and they grew 18" then died! The Avalons were still in my conservatory at home waiting to go out in the plot, I had decided to use them this way. So now two Avalons are in the greenhouse after being hardened off over the last two weeks at home and the third is out on the plot.
Let's hope these don't decide to give up the ghost  ???

If a may ask my own question:

  Is there an issue of the melons fertilising cucumbers if you have both in the greenhouse?

No - same botanical family, but different species.
Sow your seeds, plant your plants. What's the difference? A couple of weeks or more when answering possible queries!

One of the best things about being an orang-utan is the fact that you don't lose your good looks as you get older

Nope, they are 2 different families (cucumis sativus and cucumis melo) and won't cross.
