Cucumbers outdoors?

Posted: 02/07/2014 at 11:06

My crystal lemon and mini munch cues are in the greenhouse. As it's getting quite dark in there with all the foliage, I wondered if is possible to grow them outdoors. I am in Hampshire. 

I do hope someone will know!

I know what you mean. I only plant bee flowers, mainly to feed our own honeybees. Do I see them - nope! However, I did not expect the wonderful range of other insects  though - bumbles, solitary bees, hoverflies and so on. Our girls are plain ungrateful!

If I plant them in a flower bed, it should not really be too much of a problem unless there are some chives there too...

I followed all the links and they were most helpful. At least I'm not the only one growling!!  I think it is my fault too - I planted them too close. Next year I'll put them somewhere else well away from anything oniony. Thank you all.

Beginner gardener need advice

I bought a dwarf version many years ago. It lived happily in a pot for a while and then I put it in the garden. It is about 6 feet tall now and flowers well every year. Sorry but I don't remember when it was planted!

It also spreads with a creeping root system. We have learned to love it in our garden...it will die down and re-appear next year. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

I realised late last night that the 'brown' leaves on my garlic was in fact, rust. I have chopped off the leaves & binned them. Is it ok to leave the stumps in the ground because the bulbs are still quite small? Or should I lift them and store - probably in the freezer!

Any advice would be most welcome.

plant or weed?
