How do I pollinate my plants?

This video shows how to pollinate fruiting plants. This will make tomatoes, chilies and strawberries form many more fruits!

Lack of pollination usually results in few or no fruits. To help blossoms pollinate, gently shake your plant or use a paint brush to move pollen from one blossom to the next.

I just shake my plants (gently, of course) and this is usually enough to get a small handful of fruits.

I wish I knew this before. I think I got 4 mini strawberries when I tried them. I didn’t even think of the pollinating. Oh well, I’ll have to try again sometime


I keep a small, old, (clean) makeup brush with my CG9. I try to use it as often as I’m checking out my plants. If I notice new flowers, I’ll just do them all again. :slight_smile:
