Ilex looks possible. I'll inspect some fruits more closely tomorrow and try a better camera for a closeup on the buds. Thanks for the title edit.

They sometimes eat the tomatoes a little bit, but bird damage is always far less than insect damage.

comment How should I be fertilizing my container tomatoes?
@Anar: You may not need additional N. If the leaves turn yellow, give it a little. However, P-K and Calcium are more important.
