Re: Marking flowers

    Use jeweler's tags, from Staples. Tie around the base of each flower. On
the tag just use a code with the pollen parents name, for example Big Daddy
= BDAD. You can add the year also like, 99=9 . So 9BDAD, would be crossed in
99 using Big Daddy pollen. You will know the pod parent when you collect the
seed in the fall . Keep records for yourself, it is extra work, but you'll
know which crosses worked the best. If you have any questions, send me a
private e-mail.
Good Luck,
