Tomato Garden

Anonymous added on February 18, 2014 | Answered

In midseason my tomato plants start losing their blossoms before a tomato starts to form. Would it help to add lime to the soil or will the blossoms continue to fall? What causes tomato plants to lose their blossoms?

This is typically caused by either too little water or a lack of pollination. Wet or humid conditions can affect tomato pollination. Increase watering and this article will give you instructions on how to hand pollinate the tomato plants: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/tomato/pollinate-tomatoes.htm
