The Q&A Archives: No tomatoes?

Question: I planted four tomato plants, which seem hearty and full, that have yet to produce any tomatoes-none! Seems like other friends plants have already bloomed, why not mine?

Answer: Tomatoes are warm season veggies and grow best in full sunshine, in the warmest part of the garden. If your plants have not yet flowered, they are either not getting the sun and heat they crave, or they've been overfed (too much nitrogen promotes lush, green growth but sometimes at the expense of flowers).

Hope this sheds some light on the problem!
