    I do grow cucumbers but I'm not sure if the melons take up a lot of room in the greenhouse.  I'm not sure of the variety as I picked up a packet of seeds from wilko.  But I think its gonna trial and error 
    Thanks Perki

    I grow melons alongside my cucumbers and treat them much the same. They do like to do a bit of empire-building if you let them though so keep an eye on them to keep them growing in the direction you want.
