Why are the flowers falling off my tomato plants
My tomato plant grew to over 5 feet high, and produced many flowers, not one single flower turned into ANY type of tomato. I was extremely disappointed as this is the one vegetable I love to eat fresh.
They did not lack water as I made sure they were always maintained. I also gave them Miracle Grow tomatoe fertilizer and bought a special dirt to plant them in when I recieved them. As I mentioned, this is the one thing I look forward to every year. I look forward to your response to learn why I never got any tomatoe. As soon as the flower would fall off, normally this is when the tomato begins growing, nothing came. I appreciate your time and help. Thanks, Darlene
