Firstly, one has to prepare the flower of the plant which will produce the seeds.

The petals, which are of no use to us, are removed, along with the stamens, the male organs, which might cause incest.

Then, with a small brush, we delicately powder the female organ, the stigma, with the pollen collected from the plant selected for the cross-breeding. After this, the entirety is protected with a small envelope, in order to avoid accidental pollinations.

Si tolgono anzitutto i petali.

La rosa, impollinata artificialmente, viene poi ricoperta da un sacchetto di carta, per evitare impollinazioni casuali.

Castrazione della rosa. Vengono tolti tutti gli stami.

Con un pennello si preleva il polline dalla scodella e lo si porta sui pistilli, gli organi femminili della rosa.
