First time cucumber grower!

Hi there

I'm a first-time cucumber grower and have a couple of short-fruit, mini Hana F1 plants coming along nicely in the greenhouse.

Should I take out the side-shoots or just let them grow (supported)?

  • Hi Chiad    I grow f1 Q s but notthat variety and always take out side shoots and grow as cordon s well supported . The little  fruits then get goingimage be careful not taking them off with the side shootsimage
