_Hybridising  Iris_ (http://www.yarrabee.net/Hybridising.htm)   (part 1 if 
you want to read)

1)  Take the anthers from one plant (pollen parent)
2)   Choose pod parent.  Place the pollen between the  stigmatic lip and the 
style crest.  There is a  small 'pocket' or  recess that contains honey dew.  
If this area is dry and does not glisten,  a 'take' is unlikely to occur.  
For those that emailed me privately, I will attempt to answer before the  
week-end is over.  

If you  don't cross them, you can't  plant them!
