cucumber wilting

TonymabsTonymabs Posts: 20

hi there, my cucumber plant has not long taken off, i have 2 plants in a grow bag in my green house, and one in a large pot on its own. this is the first time i have tried growing anything so any feedback would be of great help. one of my cucumber plants in the grow bag seems to be wilting can anyone help?


Also i have 3 tomato plants, they seem to be doin well but some leaves start to be curling and a little droopy but not much, is this normal, they are all in a different  grow bag to the cucumbers.


I will post the pics below of the potted ok cucumber and the wilting grow bag one.

    Are you watering sufficiently?

    Or too much? Cucumbers don't like wet soil around the neck

    Thats what I was thinking. Also I like to bring toms, cucumber peppers etc  along in smaller pots and pot on until big and strong befor planting in final place.

    Had they been in strong sunlight for a while?
