I have three tumbling tom tomato plants growing in a tub. They have been growing well with numerous flowers and trusses since early June. They have had a weekly feed of Tomorite, but so far there is not a sign of a tomato. Any suggestions as to why not and what I can do about it!



I use a kiddies paintbrush and wiggle it in each flower in turn to get pollination. Your bees aren't working hard enough so try this method every couple of days.

Thanks for the advice. Will give it a try and let you know if I have any success!

Have tried paintbrush, but in fact as far as I can make out the flowers do not appear to have any pollen!!
