cucumber advice please
« on: May 16, 2009, 08:07:52 pm »
I have grown some cucumber plants from seed and they were doing ok-ish. I've now planted them in the bed in my greenhouse and the top, new leaves look a healthy deep green (they have about 6-8 leaves on them, but the lower leaves have gone a very pale green. Does this signify a problem and if so what should I do. All advice welcome, thanks.

possible a mineral defince, i think some fertiliser is needed, can faigly remember Carol on 'grow your own veg' prog  mention this problem but i don't grow cucumbers as no one in the family like them, So can't really help much than that.
