These USDA pamphlet reprints, Collecting and Handling Seeds of Wild Plants (1939) and How to Collect, Label, and Pack Living Plant Material for Long-Distance Shipment (1924), fill a niche in current plant propagation literature. Basic knowledge of collecting and storing wild seeds allows wild varieties to be introduced into gardens; it is also critical as more species are endangered by disease.
Also included are two current USDA titles: How to Identify and Manage Ash Yellows in Forest Stands and Home Landscapes and How to Identify Butternut Canker and Manage Butternut Trees.
Softcover, saddle stitched, 6" × 9", 82 pages. Reprinted in 2005.
