Hand pollination

  1. Good description, beautiful pictures and good idea to have marked fruits ! – F like Flu ?! 😉 –
    I always hand pollinate cucumbers, courgettes and melons at the beginning of the season because plants are in my glasshouse and there are fewer insects…


    1. Thanks! Actually I am not sure how F came about my hand just wrote it so I figured it was for fertilised – but then it turned into Flu 😉
      It has only worked for courgette but I am waiting to see the pumpkins grow. I have cucumber fruit but no male flowers (I only had one seed left) on the plant so no cucumbers yet. Melons are tiny plants so far no flowers.
