I GOT A OKRA PLANT IN MY GARDEN , Grown really well and healthy and blooming a lot of buds and flowers. But the buds turns brown and falls. I need to know what's the solution for that? The plants are about three months old.

That's because pollination didn't happen. Manually pollinate them by taking a cotton bud, rub the pollen on the female part of the flower.

I suggest you research on the internet why they are falling off. I have never grown them.
