My tomato plants are huge and lush and no tomatoes. I have used calcium and blossom fertilizer, shook the plants for polination and no luck. Any suggestions. Thanks

Plants need to reach a certain stage of maturity before they can flower and produce fruits, and size is not really an indication of maturity. I'd hold off on fertilizing (too much nitrogen can result in lush, green growth, but at the expense of flowers) and continue to water your plants as usual. As long as they are getting lots of sunshine and adequate water, they'll eventually flower and set fruit. Best wishes with your tomato plants!
