Hey,

So I'd like to get some seeds from a few VFTs this year, but as I'll have some different varieties, how do I stop cross-pollination by other insects? I'd like to make sure I can control the process.

Is there any clever way to do this that doesn't involve isolating the ones I want to seed from?

Thanks!

A fine net bag around flowers should do the trick.
