The Seed Garden: The Art and Practice of Seed Saving
Edited by Lee Buttala and Shanyn Siegel.
This comprehensive book by Seeds Savers Exchange and the Organic Seed Alliance de-mystifies the time-honored tradition of collecting the seeds of more than 75 crops from heirloom tomatoes and peppers to century-old varieties of beans and grains. Find species-by-species profiles that offer detailed instructions on saving healthy, true-to-type seeds. Simple lessons teach how to plan a seed garden, choose population sizes, isolate seed crops, rogue off-type plants and harvest, clean, and store seeds, while more in-depth master classes offer a closer look at pollination methods, genetic inheritance, germination testing.
