Lima Beans
Q.

lima beans grow very poorly

Anonymous added on September 17, 2015 | Answered

My limas never yield but 2 or 3 pods. The soil is fertile, well drained, and everything in the garden grows beautifully. Could it be the pH of the soil? Or other ideas?

Too much nitrogen fertilizer will prevent pods from setting and focuses more on producing foliage growth. Heat can also be a factor, making pollination more difficult. This article might help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/beans/bean-blossoms-no-pods.htm
