We had a go at Tomatoes a few years back now when the children were young......peat bags.....cut out the holes and stick the plants in it.
Had a few out of it......lovely they were too.
A rewarding hobby in more ways than one.....and all from your own efforts :thumbsup:

The very reason we started bill , for the kids … but it’s muggings here that’s left to deal with them … still when Sharon has a peep in the greenhouse she’s very proud of her efforts 🤷🏼‍♂️😂

It’s very rewarding watching them grow mate 👍🏻

Thanks joe 👍🏻 Will fix that today mate 😁 the large green pot on the right of the picture has around 4 cucumbers planted in it , would that be ok ?
They should be fine but as soon as they flower and start to form little fruits then they'll need a weekly feed of a liquid fertiliser. Something like Tomarite or and tomato feed. What ever you do do not over water them

Cheers Dick 👍🏻
It could be any one of several things, look on the underside of the leaves for any kind of infestation, as already mentioned it could be blight caused by over watering, also for cucumbers the air needs to be on the humid side so when it gets really hot you have to strike a balance between fresh air and humidity and you can achieve this by placing a bowl of water at between the plants and on the ground and opening your greenhouse so the air can circulate
