Q

My tomato blossoms dry up and fall off before they can become fruit. Not all , but enough to reduce the crop substantially

Answer

When tomato blossums fall off, they have not been pollinated. Pollen can become ineffective at 95 degrees or higher. If you select a number of different varieties, you will minimize the impact of hot weather, since varieties flower at different times and some may be less susceptible to hot weather.
