I home school and I want to do a science experiment/project with the kids this coming year but I am not finding a lot of detailed information on the process.
I have a lot of clematis and Salvia/Sage varieties and I want to try some crossbreeding. Does anyone know of a good resource online or a good book that can tell me a little more about the process?
All I am finding says protect the plant so it does not get pollinated by one of the same and to brush the inside of one plant with the pollen of the other making sure to clip the stamens from self-pollinating plants.
While I realize it is an ongoing process to produce a "winner" but are the initial steps that simple? Is there not more to the process?
