Leaf wilt on cucumbers


Leaves on cukes have irregular shaped holes, plants dying. Anyone have an organic solution?


I’m having the same problem and now they’re dying! I was told it was because they’ve gotten too much water. It’s been raining a LOT here in Georgia.

I’m all ears for an organic solution to this and it really is because of too much water?


It would help a lot if we could see a picture of the problem. Holes are often from insect damage . . . If we can see the shape/size/coloration of the border of the holes, we could better direct you. Different insects will need different approaches.
