The cucumbers in the greenhouse are not growing this year. Lots of flowers with small cues that are just not getting any bigger. I have watered regularly,feed with tomorite.  sprayed the plants when hot. This is the 5th year of growing in the greenhouse. The previous years i have not had any problems. Any other ideas please.

Thank you for the replies. Normally I grow from seed This year i bought Sarah Raven sweet peas on offer in the telegraph.Winter sown so i planted out into the growing place.fortunately i have sown some seeds .They have grown into healthy plants so all is not lost. Only my bank balance. A lesson to be learnt. Grow your own

Can anyone recon med a suitable treatment for the dreaded enemy.I have a 5 month old retriever puppy who eats everything in sight. Wool pellets and re-circled coffee granules are on his list -of extra treats.

Perhaps i should ask Monty what he used when Nigel as a Pup.

Cut the brown patch out.Re-seed the area with new lawn seed. Keep watered. The new grass will grow and blend in with the rest. I have done with in the past and it was successful. I also covered the area with netting to stop with birds from pecking the seed.
