Please, can anyone help? Our French bean leaves are turning yellow and we don't know why. They are being watered at the roots in the evening after the heat of the sun has lessened. Do they need a special feed? are they just settling in? they were planted out two weeks ago.

I wonder if they have rooted properly yet and if they are being watered a bit too much.

They do not need feeding at this stage

Did you raise them inside?.

It may be a case of just not hardening them off sufficiently.

Thank you both.

We bought them as small plants from a little gardening centre, where they were outside.

The rain here will water them today...and from the forecast, maybe the next few days too...otherwise we'll let them be and see if they settle.
