Not many blooms on tomato plants.

Not many blooms on tomato plants.

Post  ske on 6/11/2010, 3:41 pm

We planted 2 cherry tomato & 2 Roma tomato plants that are doing great. We've already had 2 ripe little cherry tomatoes and there are lots of green tomatoes & blooms on all 4 of these plants.

However, we also planted 3 (Big or Better) Boy plants. The plants look very healthy and are HUGE but they don't have many blooms at all. Does anyone know what the problem might be and is it too late to do anything? I did get some Miracle Grow for tomatoes to try. I know some fertilizer will make vegetable plants produce more greenery than fruit. I don't really thing that was our problem since these plants were planted in the same type of soil as the Roma & Cherry tomato plants.

Thanks in advance.

Well I am getting a few more blooms now but the plants are around 6' tall already and still growing. I was hoping someone might have some ideas as to what is happening and/or what I might do.

First, from what I've read, I wouldn't use Miracle Gro. If you feel a need to fertilize, why not try fish emulsion?

I suspect that you've overwatered your tomato plants, which is the most likely cause of the plants' heavy growth but lack of blossoms.

Hello Ske, good to meet you.

I'm from Washington State and have no idea how this works because we have such chilly weather, but I often read that tomatoes drop their blossoms when the temp gets to 90 degrees. Has that been happening where you are?

Thanks for your responses.

We haven't really had to water our plants much at all but we did get a lot of rain this spring, so that may be the problem.
