Book Overview

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.

   No visual interest. Black and white. Thick pages, to make for a thicker book.
I was going to give it a three star but decided on four stars. My reason for choosing four stars is more of a personal preference. The book has important information that is needed. It has a lot of information and is packed with it. The book is very boring to read. It's all black and white, so you won't be able to see how certain seeds or plants look. You won't see any distinguishing characteristics. The book was made cheap. I don't like researching or learning from the book because it's so thick. I said it was a personal preference. There are many books with visual interest. I like to see photographs in color and as they are. It may be good for someone else. It's not fair to give me a three star rating because of my own preferences.

   Bad photocopy
I was frustrated that the book I paid for appeared to have been photocopied from the original. I wonder if the publisher knows they are being ripped off. I was only asked to pay $19 because the back of the book says it's only $24.95.

   Lacking pictures where they're needed
I bought this book to save seeds from my garden. I don't want to buy seeds again in the future. I wanted to see if I could save cucumber seeds. The book says I need to find a male and female flower and describe what they look like, but I really need some pictures and not descriptive text. I thought I was getting all the information I needed from one place. Disbelief.

   A must have seed saving guide
This book is a great reference on seeds, saving seeds, information on the plants, and even the planting of seedstubers in the US. This book is an amazing guide to saving seeds. The only issue that I had was that the book was written from the authors own interaction with the plants, and in some cases in your location, you may need to look a little further into other sources for planting guides in your area. Hey... I didn't expect a planting guide to be included, and even though it was not specific to growing zones, it was still a bonus for all of the pertinent information on planting that was included.

   Returned book
I need to read more reviews before buying. I' ve never returned a book before. The table of contents has a scientific name in it. I couldn't find my region listed because the planting starts per region. No map, why? This book might not be helpful to the average Joe Blow who just wants to know how to collect seeds from heirloom veggies. Saving seeds was the most difficult part of the book. When no one is showing you the process in person, pictures are very helpful, especially when you criticize low reviews. Have you heard the phrase A picture is worth a thousand words? I want more pictures and less words. Some of us are quicker to learn than others. While you wait for your Super Reader badges to show up in the mail, I have better things to do with my time.

We will be able to keep the seeds of our harvests next year. I'm very excited about this! This book is a must read.

   Essential book for seed savers
I love this book. One of these should be given to every homesteader who cares about survival or seed preservation. I realized that it is even more important to protect the genetic diversity of our seeds now that I heard about how seed savers kicked its founder out and made a pact with Svalbard making it easier under UN treaties to patent heirloom seeds. Thanks to Suzanne Ashworth and Kent Whealy, who made this book.

I ordered the book because I wanted to start my own cache after buying heirloom seeds. This planting season is so exciting for me. The book seems to fit the needs of a beginner seed saver. Better descriptions are included in the added bonuses for how to plant the seeds and when it matures.
