After planting my tomatoes two weeks ago flowers have appeared on top of plant should these be pinched out to strengthen plant



Funny you should say that. The same thing happened to me. There's no hard science about what you should do. I decided to pinch mine out, I just planted them out and want them to get established and develop a good strong root system first. Now I'll let the tomatoes develop.

The fertilized flowers(these plants self fertilize) will become tomatoes. The unfertilized flowers will become tomatoes.

I would pinch them out so the strength goes into the plant until its bigger.

I agree. The tomatoes come out much nicer.
