About this book

The Complete Guide to Saving Seeds shows exactly how to collect, save, and cultivate the seeds from 322 vegetables, herbs, fruits, flowers, trees, and shrubs. The techniques and timing for gathering viable seeds vary from plant to plant, and The Complete Guide to Saving Seeds discusses these differences while thoroughly explaining every step in the seed-saving process. Descriptions of seed biology; tips on how to select plants for the best seeds; and advice on harvesting and cleaning, proper storage and care, and propagating and caring for new seedlings are all presented with clear, easy-to-follow instructions. Chapters dedicated to individual plants contain species-specific directions and detailed information.
