Just wondering if anyone can help out at all.
I went outside today to discover my cucumber plant looking rather sorry for itself!
The leaves are really drooping/ wilting it looks as if it is in dry soil but the compost is really moist.
I'm growing it in a pot as I only have a yard living in an urban area.
I've read lots of different things online... Is there anything I can do to save it?
Thanks very much
It's probably not appreciating this cold weather - can you protect it with a cloche?
Try and give it some heat if you can because it seems that its been too cold for it. If you can its always better to wait until mid June before putting cucumber in the open.
Good luck with them anyway.
Oh dear....I may have put mine out a tad early too, they were grown from seed indoors, repotted and put into greenhouse, seemed to be doing fine and were about 3' high with around 4 leaves on so put the best ones...9 into a raised bed about 2 weeks ago. They now seem to have gone backwards and I think they are being nibbled by an intruder.....Help meeeee please!!!
