Are these cukes dying? How can I make them better
The cukes were doing very well at the begining. In last couple of weeks, many leaves at the bottom are yellowing and dying completely. The top leaves look OK though. Here are some pictures of the leaves
Leaves at top seem to be OK
So is that yellowing going to spread to all the leaves and kill the plant eventually? The production has dropped, there are less cukes on the plant and they are not growing as fast.
Also after rains the flowers seem to shrivel/rot/die. Is this a different disease, same problem as yellowing leaves? What are these problems and is there something I can do to improve the health of the plant?
Thanks as always for the help.
