cucamelon

That is right Colin.  Mine are now trying a takeover bid in the greenhouse.  I have 3 - too many I think.  They start off with tiny flowers then gradually the fruit follow. I have been feeding them the same as my tomatoes  Good luck with them.

Took a chance and picked one.  Really quite nice.  Not as watery as cucumber, a nice bite size treat.

Has anyone grown cucamelon before?  This is my first year of growing them and they are doing very well.  I am just unsure as to when you know they are ripe.

Hi thanks for your responses.   That is what I was thinking - about the leafy growth rather than promoting the fruit production.  Am now on the look out for comfrey

I make nettle feed every year which I mainly use to feed my pots on the patio. Can I use it on runner beans too and other vegetables?

Where's the radish?

Posted: 13/06/2014 at 11:33

I am also having a hard time growing radishes - also sparkler.  Have mine growing in compost in large grow trug.  First lot came up and I only got 3 or 4 small radishes.  Second lot are growing ok but still not a lot of radish, just top growth at the moment.  They get watered every day.  Not sure where I am going wrong.
