Jonathan Baum asked 14 years ago

I have been growing runner beans for the past few years and have never had any problems. This year everthing was perfect until a couple of days ago when suddenly a whole lot of the leaves shriveled up as if they needed water. I watered them but the problem persists. Is this some kind of virus? Will it affect the actual beans?

From the photograph this would appear to be physical damage caused by the recent gales. The plants will get a small setback but will recover.
