peas are going yellow

Posted: 22/06/2012 at 20:48

My peas had been growing well in a pot but over the last week I have noticed that the leaves at the base of some of the plants are going yellow and now seem to be dying.  They are about 2 foot tall and are flowering.

Any suggestions as to what it is would be grateful

Hi something is eating my runner bean leaves and having a real good feast on them... I thought at first its snails or slugs so put slug pellits down but they still seem to be eaten, even the really small leaves that are well over a foot off the round....4 out of 7 plants are still growing but they have all been eaten....

any ideas anybody as to what is eating the and what can I do ..Please !!!

I have thought of putting some white fleecey stuff over the to prevent what ever is eating them getting to them but then they wouldn't get any light..

Hi...I have a large container(with drainage holes in) with horse manure in and on top of that i have put about 4 inches of potting compost and planted a courgette plant and its florishing...seems to be a new leaf everyday..its great as its not too big to move about the garden so it gets lots of sun....
