Sunflower problem!

Hi everyone, 
Does anyone know what's wrong with my sunflowers please? They are growing but the leaves are curling and deformed and covered in brown spots. I noticed this afternoon that the leaves on the beetroots look similarly affected. Thank you!

    My sunflowers are the same. It looks like they have been splattered with dark brown fence paint. They are still going fine though

    Mine are the black variety. Are yours the same ?

    Thanks for your reply. Yes mine are growing ok too. No, I have sown the large yellow and a smaller orange. Oh well it will be interesting to see how they flower!

    Have you got greenfly under the leaves?

    No there's no greenfly or indeed any type of pest that I can see.

    I'll take a picture of my black ones in a bit. I'm not overly worried about the leaves being marked 
  • Mine are all like this too! Glad I'm not the only one 😁

    Strange ☺ I've got 4 quite close to each other all from the same pack but only 2 got these leaves. I'd say I actually prefer
