My patio garden is doing well considering I'm a first-timer The only problem I seem to be having is miraculously disappearing leaves. Each day the leaves on my mammoth sunflower and runner beans get smaller and smaller. There doesn't seem to be a specific pattern, either. Some leaves start disappearing from the edges with toothy, zig zag patterns and some start from the center with a hole somewhere on the leaf. One leaf on my sunflower was eaten completely off within a week... all that was left was the center vein.
I have looked under the leaves and in the soil for pests, but haven't found any. Could it be a fungus of some sort? My boyfriend recently moved both of these plants closer to the rest of the plants and I'm afraid whatever it is will spread. HELP!!!
The first four pics on this page show the damage:
Can anyone tell me what may be causing this and what to do about it?
Thanks in advance,
