I will try and let you know how it goes.

The cumbers in the bathroom are now forming buds and thriving. I will post a photo if they reach full bloom. I just hope they don't hook up with the blinds.

Re: has anyone grown cucumbers....

Just put a cucumber plant down in my greenhouse. The same sort as last year. Early days yet, but if it's anything like last year - well we had so many that apart from giving a load away we're still eating sliced pickled cucumber vintage 2020. The biggest one weighed in at just over half a kilo.

If you're growing in a pot the you definitely need a very large one, plenty of water and some liquid fertilizer every now and again.

I've also got a couple of gherkin Restina plants in the grrenhouse grown from seeds. Will keep you posted on how they all get on.
