Answer: Hi Marvic

Blossom drop is a common problem but rarely persists throughout the season. Blossom drop can be caused by low spring temperatures which in turn will reduce pollen production and viability. When the spring temperatures improve and are consistent, I am sure you will find this problem you are experiencing now will quickly disappear.

Continue to feed your tomatoes with a soluble fertiliser such as Thrive Flower & Fruit and water them on a regular basis. It is always best to avoid fertilisers that are high in nitrogen (which will only cause the plant to produce excessive nitrogen) and use a fertiliser that has a high potassium percentage that will encourage flowering and fruiting.
