Garden Question

I have 8 tomatoe plants in and all of them are covered with blossoms. Most for over 2 weeks. None have produced any fruit though??? Never had this happen. Any ideas? Thanks.

Re: Garden Question

Do you have any flowers near the garden?
I might be wrong, but tomato blossoms need bees for pollination.
Q: in the past did you have flowers nearby?
What changed from last year in terms of landscape?

Re: Garden Question

Nothing that i know of changed. Flowers all in the same place. I do not see any bees, and havent all summer. I dont know if it has anything to do with it but i have an apple tree near the garden and this year it was covered in blossoms, yet i dont have one apple on it.

Re: Garden Question

I don't know if it does anything but I always shake my tomato stakes about once a day to help shake loose some of the pollen...

It probably doesn't but I always thought it did.

Re: Garden Question

I've heard of shaking the stakes for tomatoes too but I don't know if it really works either.
