If your tomato plants grow but do not produce flowers, they may not be getting enough sunshine, or they may be getting too much nitrogen fertilizer. If they do flower but do not set fruit, the flowers are not being pollinated or the temperatures are too hot and the pollen is rendered sterile. When this happens all you need to do is wait for cooler temperatures for fruit to set. Aside from the above conditions, there's really no reason for your plants not to set fruit. Hope you can determine just what is going on with your tomato plants.
