You need to shake up the plants to get them pollinating. As it gets warmer you'll get fewer set fruit and could use the spray for setting fruit (I apply it with a q-tip when I use it). But shake up the plants, that's what they need. Howard says he uses an old tennis racket on them.

Many people make the mistake of fertilize continually after they plant, and before the tomato begins to produce. It is recommended that you fertilize when you plant then don't fertilize again until you see the tiny new tomatoes at which point you'l begin to fertilize every 2 weeks.

When did you plant your tomatoes? If you planted them after early April, you may have missed the window. There's a window of opportunity for a reason. Once the night time temps reach a certain degree, production slows or stops.

It is NOW time to plant for a fall harvest.
