    How do all you clickers train your cucumbers and do you pinch them out like we do with tomatoes? I seem to have zillions of small ones and lots of ‘branches’. Help!

    How fortuitous. I just watched Charles Dowding on You Tube re: training cucs, toms aubergines etc. It tells you all you need to know.

    I won’t bother adding my twopence worth then – it was only worth about a halfpanny anyway…..

    No, please do, Sheila; for a start, I don’t have the same space as C Dowding – have you seen the way he uses string in his polytunnel?!

    I have only grown these a couple of times because I’m not particularly fond of them. My experience was much the same as yours – hundreds of the blooming things – and it seems like common sense to limit the number for better quality. I even had a recipe for cooked cucumbers when the children were young which was quite effective – but that has been lost for years. I think it might depend on the qualities bred into the seed – but others like Tony, Allan or Walt will give you more helpful advice.
