Answer: Hi Jane,

Thank you for contacting Yates, lack of pollinator could contribute to this, you may try to hand pollinate all the flowers which would help fruit setting. Also try companion planting that attracts pollinators, you may look into Cuphea, Sweet Alyssum and French Marigold. Hope this helps and happy gardening.

Best Regards,
