flowers to fruit

I thank you all for your responses.

Edd you have given me a much greater understanding of the  cucumber plant.

I could not check my variety as per seed packet as I was given the cucumber as a very small seedling and grew it on.

I still have no more cucumbers!!! many flowers with little cucumbers but they are not coming to anything like the early ones did.

I will keep a keen eye on them .Next year I will grow my own from seed and keep the packet for reference.

Hello Fellow Gardeners,

Novice greenhouse gardener. Planted a cucumber excited when flowers appeared followed by two wonderful fruits.

Now many more flowers but not developing into anything.

Do I have to remove these small non developing fruits?

Please anyone advise

Early Summer I had success with a packet of Lupin Seeds purchased at the show in Birmingham.

All 20 seeds have now given me small plants in 8 inch clay pots. Alas they all appear to be having an issue with mould/ mildew. Leaves are looking very blue grey all new leaves coming through very normal bright green.

What should I do ? and how to winter over as I do not want to plant out the plants until the Spring. Would appreciate some help please.

I do not know the variety of Gooseberry that we have. However loaded in fruit for the first time this year. Bush estimated two to three years old.

When do I pick the fruit? The berries are still quite hard but large. Could it be that they do not get any softer as this is the variety.
