Have you got straw underneath the plants for the fruit to sit on top of? Keeps them off the ground. Very beneficial for a number of reasons, one being it's very difficult for slugs etc to get to them ...

Was out walking in Avondale Park yesterday and while wandering through the woods there were plenty of these bushes growing with a lovely little pinky purpley flower.

I'd be very keen to hear how the Cucamelons get on. I had them last summer for the first time, they are very interesting and quite tastey.

I'm trying them this year too, Mayo. The germination rate was fairly poor though. From about 10 seeds I only have 2 plants now. But in fairness these 2 are growing very fast. There should be flowers i ...

Thanks Greengage, I've had a scan through a good few sites and you seem to be right. It's the grandiflorum, a dwarf variety that spreads horizontally by the looks of it. Good for ground cover maybe bu ...
