Hi all,

I'm growing Tavera bush beans for the first time. They're in soil with plenty of organic compost added, straw mulch and a regular watering schedule. I did add some Trifecta Plus organic fertilliser (5 - 10 - 4) but this stuff seems to be irresistible to my dogs who ate it out of every container in the garden!

Hounds aside, any idea why my foliage is looking so terrible? They're getting about 6 hours of sunlight a day, they are next to a wall and we are experiencing a Los Angeles heatwave so I'm wondering if they're getting too much heat? But I did think that beans were heat lovers?

P.S, foliage showed signs of stress pre-dog nose digging!

Many thanks,
Thomas

It would be better if your beans were in the ground with part shade as well as lots of water. Next to a wall in a box is asking for them to cook before time.
We also have dogs that are attracted to feeds on the plants, and the best way to sort that out is to surround those areas with some kind of fence.
