American Holly - Knowledgebase Question

I have a holly that berried the first year it was planted. It hasn't berried since(3 years). It is covered with blooms right now. Is there a way to artificially pollenate this plant? I don't have a male plant available

In nature, the holly pollen is moved by flying insects (for example bees) from the male to the female plant. Unfortunately, there is no way to artificially provide pollen without a male pollen source. I'm sorry.
