Every year I have had berries on my Bittersweet vines, but this year there isn't any berries. Is there a problem with my vines?

It is possible for part of a Bittersweet vine to die off leaving only a female or male left.

You need both in order to have berries.

I would fertilize in the spring by giving the plant a boost of Phosphorous to promote the berries. Bone Meal is a good way to do this.
