I am very new to growing anything 
and probably not that good at it lol 
i bought a plastic greenhouse thing and a few small veg plants 
personally I think my cucumber plant looks not good 
can I get your opinions and advice please 
Also growing 2 types of tomatoes and a sweet pepper.

    What's all the white residue that is on the leaves and the pots? Are you spraying them with something?

    No. That’s just how I bought it 
    all I have done is watered them.

    This pic was taken Sunday. ( don’t laugh at my huge amount of plants )

    More than enough plants for that greenhouse, Does the cucumber look like that early in the morning? They sometimes get limp if it gets very hot. I assume it's been watered, it could be a problem with over-watering, ease it out of the pot and look at the roots, you're looking for nice white roots, if you don't see any then I would probably just buy another one.

    You also need to think about potting them up into bigger pots. About 10-12inch pots will see them through.

    Yes I was going to do that tonight / tomorrow 
    didn’t want to do that at lunch today as it was too hot ( I’m guessing there ofc but I might have made myself look clever !! )
