Q.Tomato not bearing fruit

Anonymous added on July 10, 2015 | Answered

My tomato plants have grown very large and have been producing a lot of flowers for the past 3 weeks but no fruit growth. Any ideas on how to fix this? Do I need to pollinate them myself? Also, I live in Florida and each day the temperature is about 92 and at night in the mid 70s and they are out in full sun. Thanks!

Have you been fertilizing the plants? They could be get too much nitrogen, which leads to lush foliage but little to no flowers/fruit. This can be offset by adding high phosphorus fertilizer or bone meal around your plants.
