Can anyone tell me what the brown spots and patches are on my broad bean leaves? Is there any way of preventing this in the future, and what should I do with the current plants?

Thanks, will just make green tomato chutney [ which is utterly delicious] if they don't ripen.

They look like a bush variety to me, no definite main stem. I think I will leave them til they are a bit bigger, just take off the very lowest side shoots with no apparent flowers......should have stayed with Gardeners Delight!

Does anyone know if I should pinch out the side shoots of Marzano tomatoes? Haven't grown this variety before.......they are doing well in unheated greenhouse. Thanks in advance for any advice.

Thank you for your help Edd.

We have beds absolutely covered in moss in our new allotment. Is it ok just to dig it back in? We also use a rotavator occasionally and i was wondering if it might be the cause of the soil becoming compacted, thereby allowing the moss to grow? The beds are well drained but have not been cultivated for 2 years.

We have them in the greenhouse and in a half barrel outside. Lots of flowers and not much set fruit until we nipped off all the growing shoots and gave them far more water than previously. They did not like the really hot weather , but we are now inundated with tiny melons. Great for slicing in half and putting in Pimms or Gin and tonics, as well as adding to salads .
