Thanks BobTheGardener, perhaps I was a little eager this time round to get them on their merry way ! I will definitely try your suggestions next year.

Ahhhhhh yes, I'm not always patient.......I'm new to tomatoe growing so wasn't sure what they were supposed to be doing and when.  They are in the greenhouse so I will just watch and wait and wait and wait.........Keep me posted Insomnia 1973  Thanks all for your tips and comments, much appreciated.

Some of my tomatoe plants are all leaf and no flowers, is it too late now, are they unlikely to have flowers and should I just throw them on the compost heap?

I took some cuttings about a week ago using the above methods and so far they are still alive...... although I didn't use rooting powder, didn't put a plastic bag over but did put them in the greenhouse.   I think I might try popping some cuttings in water too as that sounds a good idea to try (thank you Gardening Grandma)   Good luck 4711 with your cuttings.

Thank you Emma, mine does have lovely coloured stems so I will wait and prune at the appropriate time.
