Q.What’s wrong with my bush beans :(

Zone Owensboro, ky | Cotycatrat added on June 23, 2018 | Answered

First-time gardener with zero family or friends that garden. Just put my first raised bed in the backyard with 5 bush beans and cucumber to start out. My cucumbers and beans I believe have powdery mildew so I bought Daconil but now my beans look worse. I’m not sure if it’s from the daconil or if I’m doing something else wrong. It almost looks like the leaves are burnt 🙁

What soil did you start out with? This looks like a severe fungal infection gone wrong! Daconyl can help. but too much will cause burning. Sometimes it will be necessary to start fresh. Infections such as this are aggressive, and can be very hard to get rid of. It may be best to get rid of this soil and start fresh.

Our raised bed was made with mulch, soil, and fertilizer. Gosh, I really hope I don't have to buy all new soil. Is there a way to find out if it is in fact the soil?
