My runner beans have failed to set this year. I live in the Northwest, Clitheroe , Lancashire and we have had cold nights throught nthe flowering season. Could this be the cause of the problem. We have not been short of water.

Thanks Tulsalady. I will keep my fingers crossed

My beans have plenty of flowers but these are just dropping and there are no pods forming.



welcome to GOY Puffing billy.Be patient I thought mine weren't going to set this year, but for some reason they suddenly started this week, now i've got loads of flowers.Are you watering and feeding them.? Good luck.
