Beans Dropping Leaves

Anonymous added on July 19, 2011 | Answered

For the last three years, my Roma and October (cranberry) beans have started dropping some of their upper leaves and blossoms as the beans mature. They quit producing and my butter beans start and just keep on until frost. Can you tell me what is wrong with the plants?

    Your beans may have a virus that overwinters in your soil. Next year, try fresh seed and a new spot in the garden.
