The night before the frost kills them is a good rule here in NH.

You want to wait till the plant starts to die back and then pick WITH the stem still on...

Dip in a 2-3% bleach solution and allow to air dry...Remove to a cool, dry, dark place...

Sorry bout that...

You can pick an Acorn anytime...

I have this mental block when it comes to Acorn and Buttercup...Why does a Buttercup look so much like an Acorn, but they call the one that looks lika a star an acorn...

Arghhhhhhhhh......

Salmoneye, The Confused
