Item Description...

Seed to Seed is a complete seed-saving guide that describes specific techniques for saving the seeds of 160 different vegetables. This book contains detailed information about each vegetable, including its botanical classification, flower structure and means of pollination, required population size, isolation distance, techniques for caging or hand-pollination, and also the proper methods for harvesting, drying, cleaning, and storing the seeds.

Seed to Seed is widely acknowledged as the best guide available for home gardeners to learn effective ways to produce and store seeds on a small scale. The author has grown seed crops of every vegetable featured in the book, and has thoroughly researched and tested all of the techniques she recommends for the home garden.

This newly updated and greatly expanded Second Edition includes additional information about how to start each vegetable from seed, which has turned the book into a complete growing guide. Local knowledge about seed starting techniques for each vegetable has been shared by expert gardeners from seven regions of the United States-Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, Southeast/Gulf Coast, Midwest, Southwest, Central West Coast, and Northwest.

Very Great Book  Sep 7, 2008
This book is a perfect reference for anyone interested in seed saving from vegetables. I purchased this book not knowing a single thing about seed saving and have learned heaps of useful knowledge from it. This is truly THE essential book for seed saving, but the majority of the content in this book is most likely to be used as reference for when the time for implementing the ideas approaches. And also, there are loads of pictures which really help for visual learners, a great example of the good pictures is the section on seed saving from tomatoes using the fermentation technique.

Well, this is a superb book and has quality, and quantity of things to seed save from. Highly recommended. 5/5
Love this book!  Sep 2, 2008
So happy to have this book, it is a keeper. Filled with easy to understand techniques and information on saving seed. Gave me a feeling of empowerment.
Fantastic book for those looking to start saving seed  Aug 16, 2008
I have gotten so much use out of this book, even long before trying to save seeds. It is very detailed and a wonderful resource of information on various veggies (also includes some other plants). When choosing what seeds to order for my garden, this book was constantly at my side. Now, I am confident in its clearness, user friendly style, and wealth of information and am ready to make saving garden seed a regular gardening task. Very happy with this book!
Great book  Jul 16, 2008
This book is great. It covers everything you could need to know about saving seed and when to plant for your area. I highly recommend it!
Seed to Seed  May 31, 2008
This is perhaps the best book on the subject of raising heirloom plants and then harvesting the seed. It explains in detail procedures for timing, protecting from undesirable cross pollination, and harvesting seed. I would recommend to the author that at the end of every plant type (genus) that a summary chart that is easy to identify be placed. Large plant groups like beans, for instance, had all of the information I needed but sometimes it was difficult to locate quickly. This summary could also list more concisely other plants that might appear to be questionable as companion plants but are actually safe options. For instance the tomato section talks about the potato leaf varieties being okay to mix with others, as there is little chance of crossing but specific names would clarify which is which. Nonetheless, I have gleaned huge amounts of information from this book and it is an exceptional resource for the seed saver.
