    Isn't blossum set spray a way to deliver calcium to your plants. I used the same thing in the past to address blossum end rot. Now that I have properly limed my garden I do not seem to have as much a problem.

    All-natural plant hormone (kinetin)

    I use it when the temp gets up in the high 90's. The flowers will not set fruit in those high temps very well.
    With the blossem set they set many fruit.(tomatoes).

    Beware of the brands that do not contain the hormone that causes the flower to produce when conditions are not favorable.  There is a popular brand out there that is sold in the big box stores, and elsewhere, that simply contains some very small nutrient content at a very large price....about 6 bucks for the equivilent of about a teaspoon of fertilizer.  It contains ONLY a bit of fertilizer,  has no hormone,  and probably will do little or nothing to solve your problem.
