Blue Lake pole beans not flowering
Hi - first question from me - this is a great forum. I have six rows of beans. Two kinds of bush beans are producing fine. Then, I have a trellis with two rows of Blue Lake FM-1 pole beans, and a few runner beans at the ends. Third trellis has Neckargold and a few runners.
The bush beans and neckargold all have been producing great for about a week. Neckargold has sort of skimpy vines, but tons of beans. The runner beans are flowering.
The blue lake - nothing. Big vines, no flowers.
They all should have the same soil - it's rich (compost) but I didn't fertilize. All planted on the same day. I did use innoculant. I did have some japanese beetles, but killed them before they ate too much (they were on both trellises).
The beans on either side of the blue lakes are doing great - I can't figure out what's different about them. I've had beans at the other end of the garden last year, they did fine with similar soil conditions.
It has been a hot summer here. We had a ton of rain, not so much lately. I have watered them.
