Breed Your Own Vegetable Varieties

The Gardener's and Farmer's Guide to Plant Breeding and Seed Saving

by Carol Deppe

Praise

Deppe invites you on a journey of discovery to reclaim the lost lore of our ancestors, to relearn the traditions of seed–saving and seed–breeding and to take back control of the seed. Within you will find information not available in other garden books or anywhere else. Learn how to design trials, why and how far apart to isolate varieties for purity, how to understand and appreciate the subtleties of selection and why the detailed artistry of classical plant breeding makes most genetic engineering look like the work of simpletons. Here is a woman who knows seeds, who knows the ineffable joys working with them brings, and who has penetrated deeply into the mysteries of their inner workings. She can be your guide as you chart your own path to restore and renew a time-honored tradition one experiment at a time."

C.R. Lawn, Fedco Seeds
