Hi I planted cucumbers first time, they were growing fine until I decided to mulch them. I also used miracle grow fertilizer yesterday. I came out to water them today and noticed that my young healthy cucumber leaves look dried and colourless. The edges of the leaves are burnt as well. Please let me know what went wrong with them in a few days. Was it the cedar mulch or was it the miracle grow fertilizer? How can I revive them ?

Epsom salt in tomato can cause blossom end rot but what about cucumber. Does that work in cucumber well?
When you are growing too many plant in small area then how often you need to fertilize? I have seen many people growing 3/4 cucumber in 3 to 5 gallon pot and get good harvest. How do the do that. Is it you need to give more fertilizer?

I was listening to your responses to the questions, you gave a lot of great advice. Watching the fish and the turtle casually swimming in the pond in the backgroung made it even better. Great video!

Rivit Raven says:

The pine straw myth is really a myth but i think it started because almost all pine-straw making pine trees grow in slightly to very acidic soils where the soil is made acidic from tens of thousands of years of the forest existing and changing the soil. The plants do acidify the soil simply to survive and establish but nowhere as fast as a human would be able to see in a lifetime.
