Clemson Extension Agent Jonathan Windham shows us how to cross-pollinate roses to create your very own hybrids with a process that takes about 10 steps and only a few minutes!

1. Select one plant to be the mother and one plant to be the father.

2. Collect anthers from the father plant and dry overnight to release pollen grains.

3. Select a flower bud on the mother plant. The sepals should be split enough to just see the color of the petals beneath. 

4. Remove the sepals and petals from the flower bud.
