My French dwarf bean seedlings have light green to yellow coloured leaves, I thought they were looking anaemic, now theyve developed grey brown spots in all the leaves. They're in potting mix, I recently sprayed them with iron chelate, they get about 5 hours good sun daily. Any suggestions welcome thanks.

I live sub tropical Bundaberg and I find that the bean fly hits beans in the autumn, so I grow mine in the spring. I'm on the look out to find out what to put in the soil or on the plants to stop the bean fly.
