I have lots of flowers on my runner beans but many of them are not setting to beans but just falling off.
I water them regularly and spray as well. What am I doing wrong?



Are you getting bees? If not you could try gently spraying the blossoms, but gently is the word. I grow a few sweet peas with mine to attract pollinators.

Sounds like lack of pollinating insects to me - try using a child's paint brush to pollenate the flowers.

How do I say thanks?
