Hey friends,

I wanted to share a quick tip for anyone growing tomatoes, especially if you’re doing it on a balcony, in a greenhouse, or in a remote garden.

Most of the time, natural pollinators like bees and wind do the job, but sometimes we don’t have ideal conditions. In these cases, hand pollination can really help.

The best time to hand pollinate is mid-morning when it’s dry and the temperatures are cooler. This ensures the pollen gets where it needs to go and increases your chances of a good fruit set.

Watch this comprehensive video with some easy methods for hand pollination:


Good luck with your gardening! 🌿🍅
