Cucumber damage
« on: June 12, 2011, 18:44 »
Has any one ever come across damage like this on Cucumbers.

I have grown cucumbers for years inm my greenhouse at home this year I planted trhem in allotment greenhouse and got this damage.
Could not find any insects on leaves but found a very small white spider looking insect unfortunately did not have camera at the time and just resorted to squashing it.
Top end of plant is totally stopped I actually cut it off Saturday as it has a strong side shoot which I have started to train up as main stalk.

Could be red spider mite, despite their name they are light green in summer.

Any sign of webbing?
Did it really tell you to do THAT on the packet?

Seeds are SOWN, planting's for plants (and bulbs & tubers)!

water hasn't dropped from the roof straight on to the growing point?
