Blossom Drop

Blossom drop can occur for many reasons and not just because the flowers fails to pollinate.

Sometimes, if a plant has many flowers but limited resources it may abort some of is flowers in order to concentrate on making a fewer, more manageable amount of tomatoes.

This can happen if there is not enough room for root development or if the plant is starved of nutrients.
