The Q&A Archives: when will my tomato n cuke plants make babys?

Question: Hi Cathy,my tomatoe plants have had beautiful flowers for almost 3wks, but no babys! the same goes for my cuke keep in mind they are growing in tubs,Help!!!! oh!Ihave never seen any bees,Fla is where i live,should i buy some flowers?and pray for bees?

Answer: If your plants are flowering and you don't see any insect activity around the flowers you can transfer pollen with a small paint brush. Just visit each of the open flowers to help transfer pollen (do one plant at a time - cucumber pollen won't help the tomato plants and vice versa). Best wishes with your veggies.
