    You shouldn't need to fertilise them until they start to produce tomatoes. If you fertilise too much you are likely to get lots of leaf and not many flowers. Are you able to put them outside during the day? I don't know how warm it is where you are, but lots of light is the key and nice deep soil. Water very deeply every few days, don't shallow water them. It's still quite early for tomato flowers where I am (eastern England), so I imagine you still have plenty of time yet.

    I agree, our tomatoes have had next to none flowers yet either but neither my grandmother nor my mother seemed to be worried about it.

    I guess it's totally normal, as Feverfew said they tend to grow late.

    I have not even planted tomatoes yet, instead of commercial fertilizer look something up online. They should flower in the next few weeks, if you can move them outside during the day.

    We plant tomatoes late here to so that they get ripe later than other things because we can them and they are quick to can unlike potatoes and green beans.

    My plants are already flowering, but I do not think there is much you can do. Maybe you will just have to wait until until it matures naturally. We also keep ours outside so that may have helped ours.
    All things must come to the soul from it's roots, from where it is planted. The that is beside the running water is fresher, and gives more fruit.

    I just got mine in today (it has only been warm enough for a week now). I planted winter squash, swiss chard, spinach, mustard, leaf and head lettuce, cabbage (I'm itching to make my own kraut), turnips, parsnips, carrots, radishes, dill, basil, chives, garlic chives, califlower.

    We used raised beds up here to help with heat and the short growing season. Past year was rainy and cold and everything pretty much flopped for me.

    I think it's warm enough for them to be outside now, so I will try that. I hope I get some tomatoes on them this year. Thanks for tips

    I'm new here and thought I'd just jump in

    I usually try something new every year, but my top ten for this year are:

    1) Tomatoes - with some experimentation with the Russian varieties that are supposed to do better in the Pacific Northwest U.S. I love tomatoes, but since moving to this climate have had some difficulty getting them to grow.

    2)Fava Beans - They are a fun treat for once in a while and dry well enough, plus they do well in this climate.

    3) Potatoes - This is my first year with them. I planted them to try out the 'tower' method.

    4) Kholrabi - Another first for me. I'm hoping for big, tasty ones with decent storage lengths.

    5) Onions - I love onions. LOVE. Onions. I have walking, multiplying and regular bulbing types.

    6) Shallots - Another allium favorite.

    7) Garlic - I'm trying 3 varieties. I love garlic, too

    8) Bush Peas - I hadn't seen bush varieties before, I decided to try them!

    9) Bush/Pole Beans - I have drying and snap varieties, green beans are some of my favorite vegetables.

    10) Beets - Ok, so also a favorite. I guess most vegetables are my favorites! lol

    Can give the variety name for those, I would like to try them next year?
    This year the storms kept knocking down my pea poles, and I was wondering if there was sugar snap bush pea or a snow pea bush.

    this family I work for, the wife is obsessed with tomatoes! she decided to go out and buy about 50~ tomato plants and planted them all up and down the front and back and side yards! but I love them too, I don't blame her.

    if I had the money I'd go and plant edibles all over the empty soil I see all around town. if I had a plane and was rich, I'd drop billions of seeds all over the country.

    I can't really say what my top 10 are... I like them all! off the top of my head, tomatoes, beets, onions, all sorts of herbs, cabbage, all sorts of beans - all make me smile
