Too Much Foliage, No Blossoms on Bell Pepper Plants

Anonymous added on August 5, 2011 | Answered

My bell pepper plants have grown lush foliage all season, but they are producing very few blossoms, and hence, little fruit. What could be the problem? We live in Zone 5/6 (central Ohio, urban area), and it's been very hot this summer, but we're getting plenty of rain.

It sounds like you have too much nitrogen in the soil. This creates lots of leaves and few blossoms. Add phosphorus to the soil to help re-balance it. Bone meal is a good source of phosphorus.
