This is my first time growing cucumbers they are growint well but i would like to know i have some jagged leaves coming out the top of my straight edged leaves at top do i pinch these out or leave them.



Hi there,

I'm guessing that you have grown them yourself ?
or brought small plants?
The jagged leaves are the proper leaves that will grow as the cucumber grows. The only thing you should pinch out are side shoots on climbing vine varieties, I don't know if the ones you have are outdoor or green house types. Some older varietys also have non fruiting flowers which I think also need to be removed, to be on the best side look up info of what you have growing.

Happy gardening.
