Toms without flowers....?

Hi allimage I planted lots of toms this year, plenty of tumbling toms for hanging baskets which are performing nicely, despite the weather, and producing lots of ripening fruit. But my other varieties, both in and out of the greenhouse, don't show any signs of even producing any flowers. Any ideas? xxx

    Fertiliser with a lot of potassium, the letter K in the NPK trilogy, is needed to help plants make flowers. Did you feed them with one of these?

    Getting on a bit but worth a try. Go out and buy some tomato feed and give it your best shot.image

    I seem to remember that if you feed at the wrong time this will delay flowering for quite a few weeks - this also includes potting on into the next size pot with new compost which has new feed in it. Did you pot on your tomatoes before flowers had formed? You should only feed when the first fruits have formed...
