Q.Bush Cucumber Plant Not Growing Right
I started my cucumber from seed. After planting in the ground, the bottom leaves started to turn yellow and grey, and only one cucumber took. One had bottom rot, so I treated with a calcium spray. The other fruit still hasn’t taken. I treated with milk Tuesday, and neem oil tonight. They were just fertilized. Also, the edges of some of the other leaves are yellowish, even the new sprouts. It doesn’t seem to be growing as fast as it should. Help! My daughter is attached to it!

There will be a need for some heavier fungicides, here.
It is, also, possible that there is a little too much nitrogen in the soil. I do see signs of nutrient burn, although spraying neem oil in direct sun can cause burning as well.

Thank you. When I applied the neem oil, it was after sunset. I also applied a fungicide with copper and trimmed the really bad leaves last pm, so I’m hopeful.
