Butter beans have a long growing period and do not like excessive high temps. That is probably what is causing your problems. To help your beans keep the soil evenly moist during flowering and pod formation. Rain or overhead irrigation during flowering can cause flowers and small pods to fall off. Once the soil temperature averages greater than 60°F, mulch to conserve moisture.
