The Q&A Archives: Tomato Flowers Falling Off

Question: I have large healthy green plants loaded with flowers...but after flowering, the flowers are falling off at the stem. I have no tomatoes!!! Help! What is happening. (I know there are plenty of insects around for pollination)

Answer: Flowers will drop for a number of reasons, typically cold nights, hot nights, a heavy rain, water stress, heat stress and so on. You might try a blossom set spray (available at garden centers) to try to get some to set.
