Can I move tomato plants to a new location?

I planted my tomato plants a month ago. They are growing but slowly. They have had some blooms but no fruit. They only get sun from about 1:00 pm to 8:00 pm. Can I move they to the other side of the garden where they will get more sun without killing them. Or should I just wait and see what happens?

They only get sun from about 1:00 pm to 8:00 pm

that is 7 hours of sun and it is quite enough for tomatoes in normal summer temperatures(70s, 80s, 90s F)

If they are an early variety you will get tomatoes, but if late, maybe not. I grew Early Girls back in the day when my plants could only get 5 hours of sun, and I got tomatoes, but it took a long time and the palnts were very leggy. If I were you, and had the room to move them to a place with more sun, I might try it with one and see how it responds after a day or two, then move the rest it it appears to be surviving ok. Why not, it's worth a try.

It would be a really big help to know where you live or at least your garden zone. There is a box provided for that info with every post.

Weather and length of you gardening season are crucial to how successful moving them now may or may not be.
