Translated from the 2004 German Handbuch Samengärtnerei: Sorten Erhalten, Vielfalt Vermehren, Gemüse Geniessen. This comprehensive guide to saving vegetable seeds contains the kind of high-level, technical information needed by market gardeners and self- sufficiency practitioners to refine their seed saving techniques. With rising seed prices and increasing demand for heirloom varieties, the carefully trialled and reliable techniques detailed in The Manual of Seed-Saving will allow producers to develop their product lines; they will be able to deliver improved flavours and textures to consumers.
