I've planted some scarlet runner seedlings out into my veggie garden last week, worked general garden fertiliser into the soil as well. Now the ends of the leaves are growing yellow. Do you know what is causing it? We've had strong wind one day since and hot days - although at night I wet them after a hot day so they don't dry out. I've had advice to put some lime in as a side dressing, bur not sure if that's the problem.

Lime is the key to healthy beans. My advice is to stick with the lime and make sure you keep the soil moist. Try placing some newspaper on the ground around the runner beans, and add some rotten grass on top – this will keep the moisture locked tight into the soil.
