There are several possible reasons for non blooming. It's possible that the plant is just not mature enough to bloom; lack of sufficient sunshine is another; and overfertilization is a third. Too much nitrogen can produce lush green growth at the expense of flowers. And, finally, if the weather is hot (over 90F) tomatoes have a hard time flowering. Usually, it is just a matter of time. Some varieties begin to bear much sooner than others. As long as the plant seems healthy, there isn't too much more you can do.
