Is it normal for the flowers on the 1st truss of a tomato plant to remain closed after others further up the plant are open/flowering?
i have 3 truss' on each of my plants at the moment,the flowers on the 2nd and 3rd truss have opened and look great. but the 1st truss are still closed.
thanks andrew.
