It could be related to a nutrient imbalance. A high Nitrogen fertilizer or manure can stimulate excessive vegetative growth at the expense of flowering and fruiting. Try a fertilizer heavier on the Phosphorus and Potassium amounts which are the second - P, and third - K, items indicated on an N-P-K ratio.
