    Hi I am a pea newbie growing Alderman supported as in Charles’ you tube video for which many thanks. We now have what I assume are pea moth caterpillars in pods when we open them. I have seen veggiemesh protection mentioned in other posts but can’t really see how you can protect tall peas like Alderman with mesh. Maybe the solution is to not grow tall ones!

    Hi Steve thanks for posting this I was just about to post a question about what appears to be the same issue with my tomatoes. I attach some pics. Leaves look perfectly healthy not a bug in sight just all curled up! I have had the side vents of my polytunnel open so will try closing them. Good luck with your tomatoes

    Ok thanks all I’ll keep them under cover. Maybe the crowns I planted which appear not to have made it will perk up next spring – here’s hoping!
