|I have one tomato plant planted in my garden in April from a 2' seedling container. The plant is now over four feet tall but after the flowers blossom most of them die and bear no fruit. I have fertilized twice since planting. No disease is evident; so I have not sprayed. How can I reap some tomatoes? Thanks. Betty

|Tomato plants will sometimes not produce fruit if the weather is too cold or too hot, or if there is some other environmental stress. They do eventually set fruit so about the only thing you can do is be patient. When it does set fruit it will probably set lots at one time. Wish there were something you could do to hurry the process along!
