Tomato dropping blossoms - overfertilized?

Posted: 07/02/2013 at 21:03
An interesting experiment. It could be that the air indoors is too dry which can cause blossom drop (flowers wither and drop off). Give them a daily spray of water and maybe keep a tub of water nearby which you can top up. You could have a problem with pollination but if you regularly tap the flowers that should help. Good luck with your project.

Cheers Becks, I'll give that a go.


Edit: Nope that doesn't appear to work

As I'm usually posting from my phone is there a way of posting clickable links? I can copy and paste the link but can't figure out how to make it work. Also there is no function for posting images and you can't see the smilies list, which means I have to guess them. I guess being able to use the full reply option would fix all of those problems, but I'm not sure if that's possible.

plastic sheeting over raised beds

The ground doesn't really need to be covered for the whole winter as the weather will break up any large clods of soil for you. Black plastic is normally used for a couple of weeks prior to planting to ensure the soil is warm enough to plant out, although it's still a bit early for that yet.

slug pellets help

We all have our preferred ways, I use something sharp at night. It's quick, free and doesn't leave any possible risk to anything else (although obviously not very nice). Last year was an exceptionally good year for slugs, shame it wasn't great for the rest of us.

Having had a look around I think it might be a variety called 'Drama Queen,' although I can't say for sure as not all the images match the OP's photo.

It's probably something Fizz, although I can't find its exact botanical name.

It sounds like they're not getting enough light or warmth, but we really need a little more information. When are they planted out? What's the usual water/feed situation? Where are they planted and in what?

I imagine you could mix the seeds with something like vermiculite (if you have any), although I haven't done it myself so you might want to wait for more replies.
