  • Jason, for the last 2 years I have grown Passandra in a greenhouse. I grow three plants and they are hugely prolific - fortunately we love cucumbers!

    After germinating in pots I plant them into the greenhouse bed about 18" apart. They grow tall so need supporting with canes and tying in. I use 12" lengths of pipe (about 30mm diameter?) sunk down towards the roots for watering as cucumbers don't like having their stems wetted. Outdoors I grew marketmore for the first time. It was a later producing crop, not hugely abundant but satisfying considering the weather we had.

    What did you grow this year?
