[tomato] blossom drop

Fri, 6 Jun 1997 08:43:22 -1000 (HST)

I've got this year's second crop of tomatoes blooming. There was fair
blossom set initially but now few if any are setting. I have Goliaths and
Heatwave tomatoes- our weather can be unpredictable so I figured either
one or the other variety should produce but both are doing the same. So
far, our day time highs have been in the low 80's and at night high 60's
to mid 70's and some overcast days. I'm perplexed because the first crop
bloomed during a very wet, windy time of year and did just great. I
thought I'd encounter this blossom drop problem later in the summer
months when the temperatures really started to soar. I haven't done
anything different from the year's first planting since it did so well. I
don't know what I'm doing wrong. What can I do to get a better blossom

Any advise/suggestions would be appreciated. Happy growing, Irene from
