Pathetic Blue Lake Bush Bean Plant

wadebuggMay 3, 2011

I have had all kinds of problems with this bean plant lately. It started off in a container garden, but all of the things I had planted in there got too big. It was producing beans very well at the time. When I moved it, I think it got scorched, so I pulled the dead, dry leaves off. Production died back to almost nothing after I moved it. Then, I think some of the leaves mildewed, and I recently cut them off. I probably didn't do it right. The plants looks like a disaster now.

Is there any way to save this thing? Recommendations for the future?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

If it is the bush form, Its done. Beans don't transplant well at any age, but a producing plant is nigh on to impossible. Pole form may recover to some extent, but don't expect much. Bush forms are quick, so you may want to direct seed some.
