Does anything "create" blooms on tomato plants that just sprout leaves?

    The question says it all.

    I'm not understanding what you're asking.

    What's the plant doing? Growing new branches?

    No..it's just all leaves, no blooms. Not one bloom in three months. I understand there's bloom spray if you have blooms and no bees to pollenate, but I've never seen this where it's just all leaves.

    That, I can't answer. But I do appreciate you forcing me to read your thread title multiple times until I figured it out. I guess I didn't even know that tomato plants flowered.

    What variety of tomato have you got?

    Sounds like you might have over-fertilized. How much have you been using?

    No fertilizer. Have them in 5 gallon buckets with store-bought vegetable potting soil. Watered every day.

    I used to do that too -- would get 6-foot tall plants that would develop blooms and no tomatoes.
    If you get blooms, you can hand pollenate -- basically, wet your finger or a q-tip and stick in the bloom and then in another (yes, you are jacking off a tomato plant). Also, you might want to take a screwdriver and put some holes in the bottom of the bucket for drainage.
    Good luck. I could never get my plants to do anything but grow taller.

    Too much water.
