hi i have a problem with my runner beans loads of flowers then they just die of and no bean and no pests good healthy plants so can you please tell me what im doing wrong



They're either not being pollinated before they die, or you have a water shortage and they're aborting early.

Keep them well watered, sprinkle the flowers when you water,( I just do) also some times the first flush of flowers don't set, keep calm and patient they will grow.

I think I read somewhere that if they aren't being pollinated you can help by spraying water on the flowers - just a fine jet. Another year try planting a few plants that bees love nearby.
