I would really like to grow cucamelons and so I ordered seeds for next year! Do you have any tips on germinating/growing them? 😄

Just like cucumbers @lewis8232 In the greenhouse with a lid over them until they germinate... 😊 keep repotting and they will grow, they need support. If you swipe right on this picture you'll see when I grew them last year. 👍💚

Just wondered 😀 I tried a hanging basket in Derbyshire last year but dried out, but did better in a container and in the plastic tomato greenhouse - think we had 3 whole fruit! 😂 @kimmy01

I might end up doing them outside if I run out of space then 😊 I got loads of fruit from mine in the greenhouse @bandicoot

Okay x I grew them for first time last year, great plants but I didn’t like the fruit x

Yeah they where not amazing, better young or with salads or gin 😁 🍸 @Emma915Jones

Emma915Jones

Young? Maybe I left them too long. I do agree with the gin but I don’t drink enough to warrant the excessive crop. Enjoy them :-)

LoL I understand I'm giving them another go plus I have a pollytunel to set up I want them in at the allotment... If I get sick I can trade with someone 😂 @Emma915Jones

Apparently, if you keep the roots frost free, they'll grow again next year. I didn't know that until I'd already pulled all mine up last year!
