I'll apologise for two posts in 24 hours. But, I'm excited!
I woke up today to see that my little bush cucumber (Horatio, the spacemaster bush cucumber) has put on a lot of growth and actually has a little fruit starting on it! Look really hard - there on the right - in front of the label - there is his first fruit! Last week Horatio, cucumber extraodaire, looked like this (down there - the very same plant) and these are the ones I've sent to a couple of pals to try.
And look, one week ONE WEEK, in a 9cm pot and its already trying to escape out of it and if you look really hard - there is a first fruit starting - and its not the end of April yet!!!
I'm selling the extra plants I've got on ebay and I'm only a few extra but I'm happy if when they arrive at their new houses if they grow from the little jumbo plug once potted into this in a week - clever little plant! I've put a link in as I've been asked by a couple of folk for my ebay ID - so I hope that helps those of you that have asked, just click the link above!
