For the everyday person seeds are vital for the creation of gardens and plant life, while for others they represent the future of the earth as in the case of the Doomsday Seed Vault in Norway which opened in March 2008 with the intention of housing more than 3 million seed samples from around the world. While you will never need to store three million seed samples, you may need to preserve a handful for next year’s growing season, which is why this book was developed. You will learn everything you need to know to effectively grow and preserve seeds, starting with the process of sowing the seeds. You will learn how to seed the plants until they bloom and how to select plants for harvesting and saving seeds. The process of collecting the seeds is outlined in detail with information about annual vegetables, flowers, and more. You will learn the optimal germination temperatures for your plants and the vegetables that are easiest to save for seed. Dozens of gardening experts from all walks of life have been interviewed and have provided their insights on how you can specially treat your plants for germination and what varieties are out there. You will be provided a zone map to show you which plants are best for your region and additional resources in appendices for where to order materials and more information. For anyone who has ever wanted to grow and save their own seeds, this book is ideal for your situation.
