    I have a number of bush tomatoes located on my patio.
    The shrubs have done well and have flowered in profusion.
    The problem is that they have converted little or nothing to fruit,despite the occassional attempt to do this manually with a Ken Dodd dusting wand.
    My thoughts are that after the “rains” as have seen little or nothing in the way of pollenating insects that this is the reason,albeit our starwberries/raspberries/blackberries have all produced good amounts of fruit.Any constructive comments equested.

      Hi Gary,
      Some tomato varieties are more fussy when it comes to setting fruit than others – they need more sun.
      However, the strawberries etc. are better able to cope than tomato plants which are sub-tropical and really need better weather than we can provide in this country if they were to grow wild.

      Hi Kevin,
      I’m sorry to hear about the black mould on your plants.
      It’s been a very difficult season and many tomato growers have lost their plants to fungal diseases.
      Regards,
      Nick
