I spoke too soon, site maybe fixed but I have lost the posting box down behind the keyboard again. When site was down I could see the posting box and what I had typed, could you break it again Daniel.

I found mine were tatty and using up lots of space so I tied all the leaves in a bunch with garden twine. Looks more tidy now.

That is a beauty, well done, mine are no where near at flowering stage and then only old fashioned yellow ones.

Pansyface is spot on, they are rampant climbers,

I think you may be right Philippa, they are growing just like the courgettes. They are called Perfection,  not an apt name.

David, I am growing cucumbers for the first time as well but I just cannot make them climb, they just concertina down the cane however many ties I put on them. At the moment they are sprawling about 4ft long along the greenhouse benches.

You said that when you had trouble on the other forum you frequent but you are still posting.
I dont like goodbye blogs unless you are really going, and then it is more dignified just to go, not do the sympathy bit. So will you go? Probably not.

I just couldnt get them to grow well, they flowered, went all yellow and soggy then died. I have left a couple in, the rest in the bin.

I have hundreds of bees also, they are covering the 8ft tall echium, i have lupins and foxgloves, soon will be the allium and echinops.
I sometime wonder if we all atract the bees to our gardens, will that benefit the commercial growers?
