Bev, I pick the whole flower.  Be sure to select the ones that are going to
open the next day. Place them on  a tray with the name of the flower. In the
morning when you are ready to use it just open the flower and save the
anthers.

Mary,
When you collect the pollen the evening before making a cross, do you
collect the whole flower or just the anthers - and do you put them in water
or just on a paper towel or something like that?
Thanks,
Bev
