How do you go about making specific crosses? Would you just cut off the stamen and rub the pollen into the stigma of the other plants flower you want to make a cross with? Simple question but I want to see how others do it, I’ve never done it but I might next year :)

I just use a small paint brush to collect pollen from the desired father plant and apply it to the receptive stigma of the desired mother plant.
