Hi Sam 

Collect the pollen you want to use now. Bring it in the house & allow it to 
dry on a piece of paper (it will help wick away the moisture). When it is dry 
place it in an air tight container & put in the freezer. You can remove 
pollen from the freezer & use right away as it takes no time to thaw. The 
best time to pollinate is before the bees do........in the morning. you can 
bring the plant inside, cover it with something, or try & get up & get to the 
flower before the competition.

Good luck
