It appears like the cucumber is suffering from calcium deficiency. add a pinch of chunam(lime) in 1 litre of water. dissolve it and water the plant.

Hi GG
I have tried adding lime,Epsom salt watering and fertilising fine ,but some of the leaves dried and yellow mostly at the bottom.some of the flowers also turned yellow and did not produce cucumbers.
No obvious pests any suggestions as to what the problem is ,hope it is not verticillium/bacterial wilt.

I looked at the pics. It is calcium deficiency. Can you add a pinch of Chunam ( Lime) to the water and water it.
