I have several cucumber plants planted outside (I'm in Zone 4). They are planted in large containers or raised garden beds.
hey were doing okay until about a week ago when we started having rain every day. The plants are wilting and dying and I don't know what to do. They are obviously well-watered because of the rain, at night the temperature is around 10C.
Is this something that can be caused by rain? We also had some small hail but it didn't damage the leaves, although I am curious if it chilled the plants too much. The soil is wet, but not soggy/swampy.
Is there anything I can do to help the ones that are struggling but still alive? My watermelon plant is dying too now (leaves curling and wilting) and I'm getting a bit more desperate as I see more and more plants being affected.
