Thank you for that simple help! I will go out with a brush.

Help with cucumbers

My crystal lemon cucumbers are not setting fruit. They are in full sun from late morning and watered daily.  There are lots of flowers on the plants and  bees to pollinate. What am I doing wrong?

Gardeners hands! Best cream?

Crabtree & Evelyn Gardeners hand cream. Pricey but worth it.

I have heard of a bee-vac but not seen one in action. It is meant to be gentle. I hope so! If they are exposed to the elements  could you cover them up, perhaps with the lid?  They should be quiet once the light begins to go. The rain is forecast to be quite heavy in many areas. Cold wet bees can be very miserable.

Sounds like honey bees - they just 'appear' when they have swarmed. Wasps build a nest and it takes some time.

Too true. They only began to decline when man interfered.

Thank you for that.

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!

 

 

Wild flowers

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!
