Ammi majus has fennel like leaves Nut.

Potato blight?

Posted: 12/07/2014 at 13:28

Blight in potatoes is caused by a fungus that goes by the Latin name Phytophthora infestans. Its symptoms are unmistakable: small brown-black spots appear on the leaves, often surrounded by a pale halo, while the underside of the leaves may take on a white, downy appearance in wet weather – these are the hyphae by which the fungus colonises.

"This species can cause damage to some vegetables, especially runner and French bean pods, but it remains to be seen whether it will become established to the extent that it becomes a pest.Whilst this bug can be a pest problem in other parts of the world, the evidence so far in mainland Britain is that the southern green shield bug does not become numerous until late summer or early autumn, by which time beans are coming to the end of their cropping period."

Let them be.
