Broad Bean problem

Posted: 10/07/2017 at 16:02

It won't be anything to do with the blackfly ... they're aphids and don't produce maggots.


I must say I've been growing broad beans on and off for 50 years and I've never come across maggots in the beans ...


Anyone got any ideas?

The glitch appears to be something to do with some of the adverts ... which of course pay for the site ... but hopefully they can sort it soon.

Mine looked a lot worse than that after I scarified  and treated it last year    It soon picked up ...


Grass is tricky especially in hot  summers ... look at the criticism the Wimbledon groundsmen are getting this year

Hosta ... methinks you were swayed by the romance of 'young love' and them setting up home for the first time .... you're a lovely big softy   (well, not so big now).


I will be careful ......... promise.
