It depends. Are you getting flowers?

If you are not getting flowers, the soil likely has too much nitrogen. Adding some bone meal or other phosphorous fertilizer will help balance out the soil again.

If you are getting flowers and no beans, this is a pollination problem and you will need to attract some pollinators.
