My cucumber plant is flowering but no cucumbers have grown.
Does anybody know why?

God Bless

It's the heat. Often, plants stop producing in excessive heat. Have you fertilized it lately? I would give it a good organic fertilizer, formulated for veggies. But only every 3 weeks or so. Water deeply but don't keep it soaking wet. Once we get a little break, it will start producing again.

Thanks so much! I have alot of little cucumbers on the plant now, I guess it just needed some more water.

Now I just hope the cucumbers get big enough to eat! :-)
