Hi, I started slices of store-bought heirloom tomatoes and then transplanted them into six inches of store-bought vegetable soil mix, on top of clay mix dirt. They grew and matured quite nicely but the few flower buds that do appear are dried out in the center. About half of them get at least a half-day of sun and the rest only in the afternoon. We've had some rain but mostly lots of heat and humidity lately here in central Pennsylvania. I water when the ground is dry but before the leaves wilt. Is it possible that these heirlooms are actually hybrids, or are my conditions not ideal, or am I just being impatient?
