How tall get Markemore76 cucumber?

Generally, they trail along the floor, a couple of metres or so.

They have tendrils ,so will cling to a support, but may also need tying on with some soft string.

Plant ID please!

You have Norah Barlow too. Do you find it mixes with the others to get hybrids, or have you not had it long.?  It's what I started with, then the bees were visiting neighbours as well, and I get all sorts.

I like the upward facing flowers. Nuts blue pom pom faces up, all my pom poms face down. The star series was bred to have upwards facing flowers, but they are all single bicolours.

The violet pom pom sowed itself in a crack next to the garage. It shows up a bit bluer on the photo.I started with Nora Barlow, and others including the pom poms just appeared. The bees have been busy. I assume Nora Barlow genes for multiplying the layers  of petals are at work. The raspberry ripple seed went to the Touchwood collection.I had a load from there and I am going to select the best and work from those. Black barlow is really a very dark  purple. I did have a pale blue pom pom but hubby mowed it.

Murray won the toss. He served first . Lost the first game, then broke back, and won the first set. Then it went downhill. His body language made him look very dejected, and tired compared to Djokovic.  Inevitable end , lost three sets to one.
