Here is all the guidance you need to start and save seeds from over 100 vegetables, annuals, perennials, herbs, and wildflowers.
Hundreds of step-by-step illustrations show how to determine when seeds are ripe, how to collect them and how to store them. Using open pollinated (non-hybrid) seed and this book, you can set up a growing regime whereby you will almost never need to buy seed again.
Other topics include scarification and stratification, making your own soilless planting mix, sowing, watering and nurturing seedlings, transplanting and hardening off, pollinating and collecting seeds, and step-by-step instructions for each major plant type.
