oh no I have accidently snapped the top off of my precious cucumber plant Will it be ok?? will it still grow It has flowers on it and the cucumbers have started to grow. The fruits are about as big as my little finger. I'm so worried. Also I have put the plant outside so it can grow up a trellis. Its in a protected area of the garden(out of the wind) I just need to know that it will keep on growing. Any one got any advice? Thank you

It should be fine, what you've done, is stem its growth, (heightwise), same as pinching out. However, i'm open to correction.
I agree with Lonnie!!
Actually, you've probably done it the world of good!
Yep - the goodness will flood into the fruits, instead of into the growing tip - you should get a good crop.
