5.0 out of 5 stars Seed to Seed- Honest and Unbiased Jan. 4 2011
By atanali TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
I was looking for a book that thoroughly covered saving seeds- how to do it, what they looked like, when to do it, etc. because to be honest, I knew nothing about it.
I can now highly recommend this book. It provides all the info you need to know, including: an explanation on how plants cross-pollinate, how you can prevent cross-pollination, how to process seeds for each vegetable type, how to tell when seeds are ready, how to harvest seeds, how to hand pollinate, why to grow heirlooms, as well as numerous seed saving/buying sources so as to obtain rare and common varieties. This is a book I am using often and will continue to do so. When I need to know how far apart I plant different varieties, 'Seed to Seed' is the book I take off my shelf.
It's definitely worth a buy- you won't be disappointed.

This book has a wealth of information about saving seeds. It not only tells how to save seeds but also give info about organizations in the U.S. and Canada that you can become a part of to help preserve endangered varieties of veggies. There is also good leads on where to get heirloom seeds online. It is a must read for all gardeners.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thorough July 29 2011
Format:Paperback
For someone who has never gardened before, I was very excited to take on the task. I purchased this book and am glad I did. However, to try to take on saving each vegetables seed on ones first year of gardenening? Too daunting. I will be saving my tomato and pepper seeds this year, and I'll try to add a few more next year. Great book, in a time where heirloom, organic gardening and seed saving is so crucial, and becoming a lost art.

By Mylène Bergeron Francoeur TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This was a gift for my sister-in-law, who thrives on gardening, crossing plants and other such activities. She is currently trying a few techniques explained within the book and will be trying to save her first batch of seeds this year. Seems like this one is a keeper, with lots of useful knowledge. Happy with my purchase.
