Tomato plants and fertilization
Do you have to plant 2 of the same kind of tomato plants next to each other in order for them to fertilize and bear fruit? I planted one "Jet Star" and it seems to be doing fine but the owner of the plant shop said I have to buy another one and plant it near the first one otherwise they won't fertilize? Is this true. I have very little room for a garden.
