    We grew cucumbers last year for the first time in our little greenhouse and had a great crop. This year we’ve planted two plants from seed (Tasty King f1 hybrid). The more healthy looking specimen is beginning to produce flowers, however, unlike the other plant it has no tendrils! Anyone know what might be going on? You can see the difference in the two pictures.
    Thanks

    Oops! You are right Pete! My wife and I are chuckling at our error. Thanks for pointing this out. Take pity on us as we are new at the veg growing game!

    We grew courgettes from seed too and have obviously got the labelling mixed up. The courgettes we put straight into the garden have done ok despite the weather. Thanks again.
