Puckered leaves on French beans

Can't identify that mould? Got a great tip for keeping slugs at bay? Suggestions for organic weed control? Post them here...

Puckered leaves on French beans

Postby Monika » Sat Jun 08, 2019 9:22 pm

My climbing French beans (Cobra) have puckered leaves. I wonder why - the cooler weather or a disease?

Sorry, tigerburnie, no can do. I have looked at pictures of virus damage but it does not look like that.

I would guess it has been too cold. I haven't got any outside to compare. If it is, the coming week with overnight fives isn't going to help much.

Try looking at images of capsid bug (shield bug) damage.

A few of mine are puckered too but I put this down to my foolishness at planting them out too early and them not liking the cold nights.

Maybe they are all puckering up for a kiss

How sweet, Robo ..... There is no capsid bug damage, Sally, so I think it must be the weather because they are growing quite happily expect for the slight wrinkles and crinkles.
