Tetley they could both use the ignore button  However it won't just stop them seeing each others comments on here but everywhere. In the past their different opinions about growing plants has been valuable, one in the sunny world and one in less clement conditions, both excellent plants men.

Hi, I grow cucumbers each year in the GH in black buckets in multi purpose compost. I created a string support around the eves of the GH and put canes in the buckets and tie the cumbers to the canes, and canes to the string.

My tip for cumbers is they love warmth but not direct sunshine, I water the floor to create the humidity that they like... I don't grow toms in the same GH as humidity isn't good for toms. I shade the cumbers with fleece attached to the inside of the GH with clothes pegs 

When you plant them make a raised area of compost at the base of the plant and try to avoid wetting that when you water.  Poke your finger into the compost to check if they need water, sometimes they wilt if they are too wet. Little and often is what mine get

I see no reason why outdoor ones can't be grown in a GH ..considering our weather  Make sure they are outdoor cucumbers and not gherkins.

David I would be no help in starting a Forum. I would join if you are involved. I just hope it doesn't have to come to that. I will also give it a week.

Pdoc & Verdun IMO you two are like big kids. It doesn't take a genius to work out what is going on with the talk of PM's.

Why don't you both say you don't like each other and be done with it ? 

I suggest the pair of you fall out with me instead and leave each other alone.

Morning all 

Last weekend I realised that I was spending too much time on the forum reading and chatting rather than being outside doing, so I decided to have a bit of a break and just look in occasionally. It has taken me quite some time to even find you all to say hello.

I agree with Pdoc about a mass exodus  

Enjoy the nice weather peeps.
