Just check my last post before you do that - I think you may have a scale insect infestation on your camellia - the adult scale insects will be on the branches of the camellias.  They're pretty well disguised.  You'll need to treat the adults or they'll weaken your camellia.

You may well have cabbage white butterfly caterpillars on other plants in your garden, but what you have on your camellia is not them.

Having checked the RHS page on Camellia problems, I think these are the eggs of the cushion scale insect. 

If you click on the 5th picture along on this page http://www.rhs.org.uk/advice/profile?PID=771 you'll see what I mean.

Those aren't cabbage white eggs, they're small and yellow, like these

I'd rather find out what something is before I go around killing things indiscriminately.  

If you read this thread http://www.gardenersworld.com/forum/fruit-andamp-veg/red-currant--spikey-caterpillars/98011.html  you'll get what I'm on about. 

Let's try to identify them - anyone got any ideas?

 If the seed has germinated then it'll be fine.  It's more likely to be a dryness at the roots or lack of the right pollinating insects.  Beans need quite a bit of water.  

It would be helpful if you started a new thread for this question, with Broad Bean in the title, so that broad bean growers can spot it easily.

 As Punkdoc ate all the Jam and Cream Sponge, it'll have to be Pear and Almond cake with Streusel topping.
