An excellent guide to basic seed saving information. It includes just enough botany to get you through the process with an accurate understand of what you're doing. Then it moves on to specific varieties of vegetables and flowers as grouped by plant families.

I borrowed this book from the library, but will be adding it to my home library for easy reference.

This book does what you would buy it for. It explains how to save and process seeds from non-hybrid plants so that you can replant them next year.

This book has been used as a reference all summer this year. I saved seeds from one of my heirloom tomatoes, but the other didn't do as well in my garden so I didn't save.

This book is packed with instruction about how to save seeds, how long those seeds remain viable. Excellent source.

Lots of good info; straightforward and direct, with no fluff. Better as a reference while you're in the midst of the task, since there are in-depth plant lists, with specific harvesting info. ...more
