|My tomatillo plant is growing strong and rapidly, like my tomatoes. It is blooming at a great rate. My problem is they are not being pollinated. Is there a way that I can pollinate by hand like I can do my zucchini? My peppers, tomatoes, and squash are doing fine.

|Tomatillos do well in the heat, so may start setting fruit shortly. You might try gently "petting" or tapping stems early in the morning. This sometimes improves tomato set, so maybe it will work for tomatillos. Good luck!
