Some words of wisdom 4 u Dennis !*   " outsmart the bees !!"  haha...*

When i'm cross pollinating & dont want the pollen on the plant i want to
cross i wake up before the bugs & as a flower opens in the sunlight & snip
the pollen nodules off before they burst....Then when u x pollinate & dont
want bees spoiling your fun. Try gently draping a tissue across the flower &
tape the tissue to its self so bugs cant get in....dont tape around the
flower stem & u can gently tare the tissue away in a faw days...keep it dry

Have fun !
