Reading this book now. i'm very impressed. Its a very rich book with a good deal of detail and quality pictures. i especially liked the species focused information. This helps not only seed management, but understanding specific plants better in the garden. Definitely a great book and great reference for my garden library.
This is a huge book! Beautiful pictures and tons of information for the beginning seed saver. Easy to follow instructions that include step-by-step and color photos. I am impressed!
It's a great book and super informative. It provides all the information I was looking for and then some. I can now confidently save the seeds from my garden. I am already planning next years garden with the tips and information I gained by reading this book.
I like to collect gardening books, so this is a good one to have. Beautiful pics and so on. It is not quite as easy to navigate for seed saving as one would like to think. Really have to dig around in the book to find what you are looking for, but it's definitely a nice resource if you have the time for looking thru the entire book.
We who grow and love heirlooms have the Seed Savers Exchange, formed in 1975, to thank for the incredible array of varieties that we who garden in 2016 get to choose from. When I discovered and joined the organization in 1986, little did I know how deeply it would change not only my gardening focus, but my life. Our gardens became so much more than sources of healthy, delicious vegetables - they became living museums, sources of stories and wonder, signposts of the past.A deep dive into heirloom gardening requires understanding of how plants produce seeds, how to save those seeds, and how to ensure that we preserve the integrity of such precious varieties so that they can be maintained, shared with others. This fine book sets the standard for all gardeners with an interest in saving the past so that it can survive into the future. It is a great reference book, well written, attractive, and destined for a lifetime of use.
love this book filled with almost all the information I needed
Was not what I was expecting. Very little information on the actual way to save seeds. It has a lot of info on growing plants for seeds if that is what you are looking for. I just want to know how to save the seeds for next year.
