Q.My Cucumber Plant In Greenhouse Has Dozens Of Flowers But Cucumbers Are Not Developing, Any Reason Why?

Anonymous added on July 8, 2021 | Answered

I have grown cucumbers for a few years but usually have two plants, this year only one due to garden centres being closed earlier. My daughter in law gave me one of hers, so wondered if it needs another plant to help germinate?
