Hyacinth Beans - No Blooms Or Beans? - Knowledgebase Question

Question by vmashb

I planted two packs of the Egyptian Hyacinth beans in my
backyard behind the tomatoes. They grew great and long but
i have yet to see a single bloom or bean. I planted before
Easter in zone 7 and am still waiting to see some color.
What did I do wrong? Will I see them come back next spring?

These beans do take a long time to come into flower and subsequently produce beans. For the best performance they need warm soil and sunny weather combined with ample water and nutrients. You may find that they needed extra water or compost and/or fertilizer during this dry summer. Unfortunately, they will not come back next year.
