I just bought one tomatillo plant as part of a mixed punnet from Bunnings. Dies this mean I wont get fruit as I read they are not self pollinators

I bought seed packets from Bunnings Traralgon. I have about 30 growing. Kate, how did yours fare? I did read you can prune them after four leaves appear. this is my first attempt

That is what it says. Need to buy one or some more plants.
