The Rhona Goskirk actress has taken to Twitter to plead for help from her followers.

And, when she got the help she needed, Zoe was pretty thankful.

Emmerdale news: What did Zoe need help with?

As avid Emerdale fans will know, Zoe and her co-star husband Jeff Hordley – who plays Cain Dingle – are avid gardeners.

They have a huge veg patch and often share their success stories with followers.

Recently Zoe posted a picture of her other half holding a huge cauliflower.

While we can’t confirm what she was commenting on, Zoe captioned the post: “Whopper!”

And, this time, she needed help with another of her veg babies, calling on “cucumber experts” for help.

What did Zoe post?

Posting to Twitter, Zoe said: “Cucumber experts! Why are our leaves turning yellow?

“Too much/too little water maybe?

Fellow garden lovers were quick to rally round, offering Zoe a solution to her problem.

One commented: “Probably lack of nitrogen. Cucumbers prefer a nitrogen weighted feed throughout their growing life.”

He then referenced the warm weather and added: “If growing under cover some form of sunshade over them such as fleece will keep them cool.”

“Wonderful! Thank you Simon!” Zoe replied.

A career as a farmer calling?

Looking at her Twitter feed, it appears Zoe and Jeff are almost self sufficient when it comes to their veg patch.

Earlier this week she posted a picture of Jeff holding a huge cauliflower.

She said: “This is the biggest cauliflower we have ever grown! It might be the biggest cauliflower I’ve ever seen!!!!! Maybe we should name it!?”

And just a day before she shared pictures of home-grown courgettes, raspberries, peppers and tomatoes.

A career as a farmer looks as though it might be on the cards should Zoe ever decide to leave the ITV soap!
