Tomato flower drop

23 July 2013

Ok, so this past week I have been noticing that the flowers on my tomato plants are turning yellow where the potential stem is , and falling off. It is very discouraging and heart breaking seeing as I spent $600.00 last year on a green house just to grow my tomatoes. Being in the Pacific Northwest I feel it is a necessary evil.  So I did a little research on it last night and come to find out, that necessary evil is making my plants to hot. The main cause of tomato flower drop is temperatures that are to hot or to cold. So needless to say I am going to start opening the doors during the day.
