Tomato novice

United Kingdom Gb

I am trying for the first time to grow tomatoes in my conservatory. The plants have grown well and started to produce flowers, however the flowers drop off before they set any fruits. Can anyone tell me what is wrong or more to the point what I am doing wrong/




It sounds like they might be too dry, If they are in pots as opposed to Growbags, you need to water them every day - do not let them dry out and feed them with tomerite (tomato food) every two or three days once you have tomatoes formed. Another thing is that tomatoes like a humid atmosphere, and good ventilation, which may be harder to achieve in a conservatory, Goodluck.

Also when flower forms - tap the stem of the plant it help pollination aiding the fruit to set - tap fairly hard or give it a little shake
