Can I grow peppers and cucumbers the same? I grow them the same as tomatoes at the moment.
In answer to Townsend. I have started using string, which I feed through bottom of eventual pots and tie off, then tie to high rail in greenhouse. Tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, then can be tied onto individual string or wound up string. Advantage is that you don't have dangerous sticks to poke yourself with - disadvantage is that the pot is less 'mobile', but if you decide to move the pot outside you can tie it to the branch of a tall shrub, just need to be an octopus to do it. I use this method to grow beans up a fence, and last year tried it with pumpkins, and that worked a dream. Just used thin rope rather than string.
