Tomato Flowering Question

Happy Spring everyone!

I have a very basic question. Do tomatoes start to bloom when there are fewer daylight hours or do they automatically start flowering after a certain number of days?
I would appreciate any help.
Take care,

I think they start to put out buds when they have produced a certain amount of leaves, because the leaves start to produce more sugars than the plant needs so it puts the extra energy into flower/fruit production.

That makes sense.
Many thanks catman!
