I have been growing cucumbers and done quite well in previous year... but not this one.

I have two plants in the conservatory. There are plent of cucumbers forming but when they get to about two inches they go yellow, shrivell up and die. The rest of the plant is very healthy.

Anyone any ideas ?

What sort of feed are you giving them? If they are in pots i would say they need some high (k) product k being phosphates if im remembering right.

Mind you it could well be bad genitics of the seeds or the runts of the litter if you will. Water could be another issue and again if your growing in pots inside the can dry out very quick so could be something to cheak. But if you can give me I bit more info I may be able to offer you another 2cents worth.

Best of luck.
