I tried recently, for the first time, to take some samples of a couple of plants that I couldn't identify, so that I could examine them at home. They were plentiful enough to allow that. However the degradation in the plant samples was very quick, especially the flower sections.
Does anybody have an idea of how best to collect samples of plants either (i) for examination within a few hours; (ii) for longer-term storage for examination by someone else in a few days'/weeks' time? I list these separately because the storage methods might be different.
