Pole Bean Plants Grew Tall But Most Did Not Produce Fruit

Question From: S. Hemmen - Charter Township of Clinton, Michigan, United States
Q: Our pole beans are at least 7' tall. I have 12 plants. I staked them when they kept growing! HOWEVER.. we have picked ONLY 4! Can you tell us what happened?

A: Hot weather and lack of water happened. Too much nitrogen fertilizer will also prevent flowering and fruiting. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
