Cool cucumber

My cucumber plants have been flowering but I've not found any fruits so far. All the flowers I've seen are male, so there is no chance of doing manual pollination. I've spotted some bees and butterflies in the garden and was hoping they could do the job for me.


  1. I just made a comment to Petunia about this with regards to her xiang gua's pollination:

    When the male flowers bloom, just snip them off and place in a ziplock bag, then store in the freezer. Once you see female flowers, then you can take the male flower out to pollinate.

    One of my friends did that. It worked.

    I hope it helps. =)

  2. Oh that sounds like a good idea. Thanks!
