|Breed Your Own Vegetable Varieties by Carol Deppe
“Breeding is an expression of individuality, for your tastes and needs.”
Entertaining and scientific, this book gives a gardener or farmer all the tools she needs to save seeds and develop new varieties of favorite crops–on any scale from a few pea plants to an entire winter’s worth of squash. We are proud to be publishing a new book by Carol, available this October, called The Resilient Gardener.
|Seed to Seed by Suzanne Ashworth
This book contains a lot of general information about seed-saving, but what distinguishes it is an extensive list of vegetable varieties, grouped by family, and their characteristics, as well as specific information about the seeds of each.
|Garden Seed Inventory, 6th Edition by Seed Savers Exchange
Described as a “catalog of catalogs”, this book tracks the availability of non-hybrid seeds in the US and Canada. This is essential for those looking to save their own seeds, since only non-hybrid seeds will produce predictable offspring. Seed Savers Exchange works to preserve unique seeds for the future.
