Bean Plants
Q.

above ground garden beds

Zone gold coast Queensland | lynbailey13 added on March 14, 2015 | Answered

Two above ground garden bedsĀ  - should I remove all plants before planting anymore? I purchased bean plants from Bunnings and also sowed seeds. The plants that I had bought started to get rust spots and the ones I had seeded were quite good but started go get spots as well. I removed them; now my tomatoes are getting spots as well. Should I remove all plants and start again? I find this very disappointing. Please help. Thank you.

I am wondering what conditions are causing this rust to thrive. Is it possible that you are overwatering your plants? How close are your plants planted together - is there enough breathing room around them?

Let's try to salvage what you have before removing all the plants and starting over. It is recommended to remove and dispose of the affected leaves at the first sign of rust, then treat your plants with a fungicide, such as neem oil. Continue to do this process until the rust is gone. Also, be careful not to overwater your plants.
