I have a GReenhouse where I'm growing tomatoe , Cucumbers & peppers . The 10+ cucumbers plants are growing like wild with flowers all over and 0 fruit , same with the tomatoes .
Outside , the same variety growing nicely with 100's flowers AND fruit . What should I do?
1) Grow parthenocarpic cucumbers ? Would that help?
2:) grow tomatoes meant for GReenhouse at johnnyseeds ? Would that solve problem?
3) buy ladybugs and let them do the pollinating ?
4) just grow leafy greens instead of fruit bearing plants ?
Thank you, johnny

|One reason for no tomatoes might be that they will not set fruit if they don't have at least low temps of 72. If it stays warmer they will not set fruit. I grow them in the GH in winter, and outdoors in summer. MY GH is way too hot to grow them in Spring or Summer.

|I agree with the temperature being a possible issue.
The second one would be no pollination. Why don't you try hand pollinating?
The tomatoes are easy to just shake the plants when you walk by. The cucumbers do need pollinating. Have your peppers been blooming?
May I ask why you have some growing indoors and some out? Are you experimenting?
Be content moving inch by inch because, by days end, the inches, will add up to feet and yards.
Fulfilling ambitious objectives is usually done one step at a time.
