Help..I have a Indian bean tree which is 3 years old. This year though it started to grow but now the leaves look like they are wilting and burnt. I have given it plenty of water  and dont know what has happened or how to solve it.

    It looks like the young growth has been affected by the frosts many of us had in the UK last week.  It will drop the damaged leaves and soon grow new ones. :)
    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    I would agree with @BobTheGardener

    If it's planted in the grass, make sure it has a nice, cleared area round it - if you haven't already done so. That also helps with water retention in long dry spells, and the addition of a mulch also helps  :)
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...

    Thank you both very much. I will clear the grass from the base of the tree.
