Hi - I bought some plants from our local village fete - really healthy ones.  I'm not sure if they're cucumbers or courgettes though!  Any ideas?

Hi, I'm not a vegetable expert but in my experience cucumbers tend to have more pointed ends to their leaves while courgettes are more rounded on the tips. Pip
