I recently bought a tomatoe plant and repotted the plant into a bigger container and the plant just grows the flower of the tomatoes. What should I do to grow my tomatoes?

You may need to transfer pollen from the open flowers on your plant. You can visit each open flower with a small paint brush to transfer pollen or you can tap the branch with the open flowers to make the pollen drop onto the right parts of the flower. Once pollination has occured, the flower should develop a tomato. Good luck with your plant.
