The Complete Guide to Saving Seeds includes everything you might need to know about seed saving but it is not for the dilettante. It starts with a detailed description of plant reproduction and anatomy. The text continues in dictionary form describing seeds, from artichokes to yuccas. Even ginkgo seeds, which “smell like rancid butter” (how diplomatic), are included. This book will help gardeners organize and save seeds while providing details on the history of seed saving in North America.
