Q.Why Does My Second Crop Of Cucumbers Fail To Grow Past The Flower Stage

Zone Warrington Cheshire | Anonymous added on June 12, 2021 | Answered

Every year I plant a cucumber in my greenhouse, the initial crop of flowers produce about 4 cucumbers. The next flowers open and small yellowish cucumbers form but fall off once they are about 1 inch long. I regularly feed them as instructed but as this happens every time I must be doing something wrong. Can you please advise?

Unfortunately, without photos it would be hard to say. It sounds like the plant declines over time, and it could be due to overwatering, or nutrient depletion, or even disease.
