Tomatoes - Knowledgebase Question

Yucca Valley, Ca
Question by MrsRains

I purchased tomato plants at our local home depot. They have been in the ground almost 8 weeks. But I have one plant with 8, one with 5, one with 3 and one with 0. I have been using Miracle Grow and no results. Also 5 pepper plants, one pepper.
Help!! Sincerely, Karen Rains

You might try pinching back the non-productive plants to encourage new growth, which should develop flowers and fruit. Although peppers and tomatoes like warm temperatures if the weather is extreme (over 90F) some tomatoes and peppers won't flower and if they do, they won't set fruit. Time is on your side, though. As temperatures begin to moderate in the next 3-4 weeks. Just be patient with your plants.
