Flowers on cucumber turning white and leaves dying

Hi there,

I am growing telegraph Improved cucumbers in an greenhouse.

Currently, on some plants the flowers are turning white and the fruits are not developing. On other plants, the leaves are turning yellow.

I have already harvested a good number of cucumbers and more are coming.

BTW a reduced yield might be a blessing as the packet says a plant will feed a family of 4 and I have 5 plants as I did not believe them.

I apply tomorite weekly.

Any advice

    I'm growing a mini-munch cucumber in my greenhouse which has been producing plenty of cucumbers.
    The cool weather last week has made it pause and I've had a few undeveloped flowers too and a few manky leaves.
    I think it's just weather related.
    I've cut off the dodgy leaves and new fruits are swelling again now it's warmed up a bit.
    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.
