Better Boy Tomato

Tomatoes Not Blooming

Anonymous added on June 24, 2015 | Answered

I live in central OK and have planted Better Boy tomatoes this year. The plants are quite tall and bushy, but no blossoms. We are having temps in the 100's, and I wonder if this is why they are not blossoming. My Romas, however, are putting out fruit. All are planted in raised beds (2 ft deep), have red mulch on them, are watered daily, and fertilized with one that contains calcium. Any suggestions?

In addition to the high temps, it sounds like you may have too much nitrogen in the soil. High nitrogen will encourage foliage growth and discourage blooming and fruiting. Add some phosphorus to the soil to combat this. Bone meal is a good source of this. Here is more information:
