Tomato Flowers Drying Up

Post  sarah16 on 5/22/2010, 8:39 am

I should say upfront that this is my first experience growing tomatoes, or any type of fruit or veggie...

My tomatoes have been planted for almost 2 weeks, look great, and have a bunch of yellow flowers. This morning while checking on my little garden I noticed that some of the yellow flowers have dried up.

Could this be a result of something that I have done? Are they not getting pollinated? Any insight or tips would be appreciated - I want 'maters!

It could be that the bloom is fading as the fruit has begun to develop.

The flower has to die before tomatoes can form. Wait a couple of days and look again.

See, I don't know what the heck I'm doing! But it's fun! Thanks for the replies.

I'm excited now for my early morning garden check tomorrrow, and I just may have to bring a magnifying glass along with me.
