Re: broad beans

Looks like just a bit of transplant shock water them in with some seaweed solution it will get the roots growing and strengthen the plants cell walls

Re: broad beans

Hi @gore 

 

I see you have already received a helpful reply from @Ricardo .

 

Do you know if the leaves that are curled are not new leaves un-curling? I note that all the curled leaves are on the top where the new leaves are also un-folding. Depending on how gentle you were with transplanting most plants will suffer some amount of damage when re-planting. It could be a little bit stressed and it has also been getting fairly cold overnight. Have you had any frosts in your area?

 

I would monitor it over the next couple of days and perhaps apply a diluted application of Seasol 600ml Concentrate Liquid Fertiliser at half the recommended rate as Ricardo suggested.

Re: Insects on my broad beans

Hi @gore,

 

The insects certainly like your garden! It must be all the amazing plants you are growing. Those are Aphids a common garden pest. I was looking back through your other posts to see if you had already purchased something that would deal with them. Did you ever get the Eco oil mentioned in your other discussion? If so that will work. Otherwise, since there seems to be a substantial amount of them I would recommend Yates 750ml Ready To Use Pyrethrum Insecticide or Yates 750ml Nature's Way Vegie And Herb Pest Spray if you want an organic option.

 

Please let me know if you need further information or had any questions.

Re: Started harvesting broad beans

Hi @gore

 

It's fantastic to see your harvest! I've merged all your topics together so other members can see what issues you have had along the way. It also makes it easier for others to navigate the site and find posts of interest.

 

I'm sure members will really appreciate reading all about your broad bean journey and seeing the bountiful crop you have managed to harvest.

 

Well done.

 

Mitchell
