First year of growing stuff in the GH. So a steep learning curve. I have sown tomatoes, peppers, chilli peppers, melons, lettuce, a grape vine and cucumbers. I tried courgettes and squashes too but they didn't seem to like the heat so I moved them outside. Now I do know that water is not to be sprayed on the cucumber leaves. So from the photo can you tell if they are getting too much or too little water as I cannot tell? I give everything a good soak in the evening.

I finally got the GH finished about three weeks back and put a thermometer in. The next day at lunchtime it was 46 deg. C. I do open the windows every day.

Apologies for the slight blurriness.

i think too much water. They can suffer from mildew. You also need to have air through your tunnel too as it is very hot these days. You should also put some supports in now for them to climb on before the plants get too big. I have bamboo sticks and hard plastic netting on my cucumbers
