Hi All

 

My tomato flowers are wilting 2 days after blooming – flower stems turning yellow and falling down. The plants are very healthy and i have plants in both pots and planted on the ground. The plants on the ground receive sunlight during the morning for a few hours and the plants on the pot receive sunlight furing the mid day. There are no pests except for leaf miners on few leaves. Can some one help on the remedy?

 The first few sets of flowers for all plants fall without producing any fruits.  Try shaking the plant lightly to help pollination.

As Camaroon said the first few flowers will wilt down. As he suggested try shaking the plant. My Cherry red was flowering for the past 2 months and only now  handful fruits have started setting. So you have to wait. Now for the few other plants were flowers are started, I am just cutting them off so that the plant can have a healthy growth and can later bloom.

Also I have read that the weather also plays a role for setting tomato fruits. So patience is the key.

Thx Cosmos. I was worried as i saw a lot of flowers wilting after yellowing at the flower stem. I am planning to do manual pollintion to see if i can save the tomatoes .
