Tomato flowers drop off!

Tomato flowers drop off!
Posted by Gail McKenzie (gmckenzie1@earthlink.net) from CA on 2002-05-29 00:02:32

I get tons of flowers on my tomato plant, but so many of them either drop off while still yellow, or turn brown and THEN drop off! What am I doing wrong? Thanks in advance!

    It's called 'blossom drop'. Here's a site that explains it.
