If your tomato plant is indoors, in a greenhouse or polytunnel – do not expect to still get tomatoes even if bees have access to the plant. Tomatoes are actually self-pollinators so without an outdoor environment they will need a helping hand.
There are two main methods for pollinating your tomatoes but never fear they are very easy! When your tomato plant is in flower:
Hold the tomato plant and shake it rigorously but being gentle to the plant. That’s it!
Hold the stem by the flowers and gently flick the flower heads a few times. Viola!
Then just wait it out until you see the flowers turning into tomatoes. You may also need to do this to give your tomatoes a helping hand if they don’t seem to be pollinating themselves.
