By Claude

runner beans have lost their flowers also have holes in the leaves,could this be the cold wind we had up north acouple of nights ago. I dont think is pest damage as they seem clean.looking foreward to your replies....thanx John



birds often get at them, i have had bluetits stripping them off before now. is this a posibility?

probably birds, sometimes we net our beans for a few weeks, i think once you start getting lots of beans appearing the birds loose interest, and the nets can come off.
