Accidental application of Pathclear to runner bean plants

Andy, I would not grow anything there at all this year.....if it grows anyway.  Certainly nothing edible.

we have to be sooooo careful.  I have a watering can and sprayer marked "weedkiller" in large red print.  Even a residue of weedkiller can damage plants........once watered tomato plants with same can I used for weedkiller and lost my tomato Plants.

whats happening my carrots

Ray, if you had carrot fly last year in that spot the carrot fly would have already been in the soil and hatched out under your fleece.

this year one lot of carrots was sown in same spot as last year and I used nematodes as well as fleece.  The nematodes should, theoretically, break the cycle.

i would sow afresh and water on nematodes afterwards.
