    Did you plant seeds or use already grown plants? It would be helpul to have a little bit more information to help identify any problem.

    When did you plant the seeds? How tall are your plants now?

    Well they look very healthy indeed and should have had flowers by now. Have you been giving them lots of fertiliser because they are very greedy plants and they like lots of water too?

    I have watered everyday and put tomato feed in them also there is a small bottle in the plant that feeds them

    It may just be that there are too many plants in the pot but I wouldn't give up just yet. Give them a few more weeks.

    I'd agree with Ladybird - far too many plants in your pot, which means a lot of competition for nutrients.

    You really shouldn't need to water every day either - even in a pot, and even if it's been dry. Always check how damp the compost is before watering. If you stick your finger in and it's only the top inch or so that's dry, then they should be fine for another day or two. 

    I think it could be a combination of things preventing flowering, but it's hard to be specific  image

    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....
