hi all ,some of my basket tomatoes are covered in lots of flowers but not turning into toms ,is it to do with pollination ,?? thanks



If you are concernd about pollination then with your finger just flick the stem with the flowers on about 12mid day thats when the pollen is most rife that should do it, worked well for me...... best of luck....

Very strange that while many people are having problems with their tomatoes this year, I am enjoying my best ever tomatoes growing. I do not know anything about tomato pollination but my gardener's delight which are kept shut in a cold frame bear huge quantities of ripening tomatoes. My cherry tomatoes which are kept outside also do extremely well. Many bees around? Have they all moved south? No idea.
