Q.Why Are My Kentucky Wonder Beans Not Forming Blossoms?

amybRN added on June 7, 2011 | Answered

I have gorgeous vines, lots of leaves and climbing up the trellis going on, but no blossoms! My Italian flat beans (planted at the same time) have a ton of blooms and tiny beans on them, but my Kentucky wonders are duds! What’s going on and how can I get them to produce?
