I'm growing 3 tomato plants on the windowsill. They are just beginning to flower. Do they need Bees? And if so, will simply opening the window do?



With tomatoes, both the male and female parts of the plant are present in the flower and so they will pollinate themselves. They don't need bees or other insects to pollinate them, but you can help pollinate them by shaking the plants every day or put a small oscillating fan near them to mimic the wind.
