I think I gave my cukes the kiss of death - Is there any hope?

Post  Windmere on 5/3/2013, 3:08 pm

Hi all,

As foretold in a previous post, my transplanted cukes are not doing well at all. Three inches high and I picked off a tiny yellow blossom bud today.

Is there any hope for them? Sigh....

Sad

Probably not. Shocked

Resow, without delay.

Is that because the plants should be full grown before they blossom? That is what happened to me last year and I kept the plants. They didn't grow any bigger nor did they blossom again. So I guess I may have answered it myself.

Hi,soak the seeds over night in warm water and sow them directly in the ground they come up really fast .

Thanks all

I thought they were goners. Lesson learned. Thanks for the kind encouragement to re sow. I WILL NOT give up. Lol.
