    Default Is it too late for me to sow marketmore cucumers?

    I already have some but I have become fond of them, but I think it says sow in no later than may. Is it still worth a try?

    Nothing ventured nothing gained. I'd give it a go.

    Everyone at the lottie keeps telling me we're a month behind this year...so long as winter knows the new schedule,you may just be OK
    If it's just for a few extras and you're not relying on them,then like the others say...'nothing ventured.....'

    No way is it too lat for marketmore,but if you have polytunnel or greenhouse I'd sooner give them a chance to get going in there for a month or so. If we get a summer (ha ha),then they will catch up outdoors for sure

    I've sown cucs at this time of year before when I've had mishaps with the other crops. You should be fine although they will start fruiting a bit later.

    Some of us live in the past, always talking about back then. Some of us live in the future, always planning what we are going to do. And, then there are those, who neither look behind or ahead, but just enjoy the moment of right now.

    Which one are you and is it how you want to be?

    What a lovely turn of phrase.... in a week it will be quarter past June!!!

    I think I'll start using that system and it may stop me having the "moment" I had earlier today when I realised that the longest day was not far away and the nights would start closing in!!

    The proof of the growing is in the eating.
