The staining process is varied. I have a number of stains which I have made from clear glycerine and Sufranan, Fuchin and some with food colouring. The ones that are rather pale in colour or yellowish looking are raw pollen grains which have not been stained.

I am sorry but although we have lavender I do not have any lavender pollen grains.
