i'm afraid that you just can't neglect tomato plants and expect to get optimum results.
The reason most of us give our tomato plants a lot of attention, pinching out the sideshoots before they're an inch long, staking, watering and feeding regularly and stopping the plants after they've reached the appropriate number of trusses, is because that's the way to get good fruit.
I really don't think that you can ignore them for a month and expect good results - especially in Scotland where the weather is hardly ideal for outdoor tomatoes.
What happened to the ones in your conservatory? Did you get someone to water them?
