Pole Butter Beans

Anonymous added on June 20, 2011 | Answered

I have planted pole butter beans and don't have any luck with them. The pods comes on but don't fill out (no bean inside). I have also planted bush type and they seem to do better, but I had rather have the pole type, as they are easier to pick. Is there something in the soil that won't let them fill out?
