Pat inquired with the Urban Horticulture Advisor, UC Cooperative Extension about recent problems with beans and tomatoes. Here are the results of that exchange:
I am hearing from many gardeners this year that they are having problems with green beans. So is my daughter, Wendy Woolf, having problems, but my daughter Francesca Filanc has no problems and her beans facing south in a Rancho Santa Fe garden with protection from wind and a wire structure in which the grow in a raised bed which has no problems. (I have shot videos in both places.) Fran’s raised beds are filled with top soil. Wendy’s were originally filled with potting soil then she added top soil on top.
Could there be a new virus on beans? Below is a link in which I discuss all the bean problem and try to find solutions.
I sent you a copy of what I wrote a reader today.
Thanks loads if you can help me with this. (the lower link below leads to a discussion on beans.)
