New to gardening, a few questions
I recently started setting up a container garden after finally moving to an apartment with outdoor space. So far I am growing grape tomatoes, cucumbers, strawberries, pole beans, a kumquat tree and various herbs. Everything seems to be growing very nicely but I have noticed two issue with the kumquat tree and pole beans and i'm not really sure what's causing it.
I bought the kumquat tree about 2 weeks ago and followed the instructions the person at the gardening store gave me. Transplanted into a 1 gallon pot with cactus mix, I read a lot about transplanting and was very careful about it. Right now it looks like it has not grown at all and the leaves are starting to curl up. Does anyone have any idea what could be causing this? What should i do?
My other issue are the pole beans, they are growing wonderfully but some of the leaves are starting to get holes and get discolored. I noticed tiny little green bugs jump around when I disturb the leaves, i looked this up on google and my guess is that i have leafhoppers. Is that likely what's causing this? I don't want to use pesticides and have read that ladybugs are a good remedy, should I buy some?
If you need any other information let me know.
