I planted a tray of dwarf broad beans in a huge tub and the plants are literally packed with flowers. But now the flowers seem to be turning black too early and dying but there's no signs of any pests although I have given them a good spray. Advice very welcome as I have only grown them once before but I don't remember this happening The dodgy one are at the bottom of the picture...
The flowers will die as the little bean pod forms at the base of the flower
They do die from the bottom up, as Mark says when they are ready to make little pods. Yours are way in advance of mine.
Really appreciate the replies - thanks guys
Mine look exactly the same - just waiting for some pods to appear! Then I'll pinch out the tops to try and ward off blackfly...
