No blossoms on bell pepper plants - Knowledgebase Question

I've got beautiful dark green leafed bell pepper plants with no blossoms. Where the blossoms should be are little brown nubs. I've grown peppers for the past few years with no problems. Any ideas as to what would cause this?

The problem might be weather related or it could indicate a need for phosphorous. Too much nitrogen can cause similar problems. Try side dressing with a low nitrogen, high phosphorous fertilizer such as a bloom booster. Hope this fixes the problem!
