another tomato question
I'm the same one who asked about the overwatered but drying up tomato... (as for it, the soil had become too tightly packed so I tried combing through it a bit and the water does flow through much better now, though the poor thing still seems stunted) Regarding the other two... they are both flourishing, especially the one I think is the White Beauty which is threatening to be as tall as me. I was excited when they started flowering, but so far every flower has ended up drying out and shriveling up before it became anything else. They are still producing more flowers and growing more buds so I have some hope, but I'm not sure how to solve the problem. From what I've read online it seems this happens when it's too hot for them (it has been exceptionally hot this summer) and I have only seen recommendations to keep them well-watered, which I have done. Is there anything else I can do to help the flowers mature and bear fruit-- a nutrient I can add, maybe? Thanks for anything you might suggest!
