We planted 3 different species of tomato plants in pots this spring. Only one developed fruit and it was completely consumed by tomato worms. How do we avoid this problem in the future?

Tomato fruit worms can be controlled with regular sprays of rotenone or with Sevin. Be sure to read and follow label directions. You may need to begin spraying before the blossoms open and then at 7-10 day intervals.
