Those pricey transplants set out on display every spring are so tempting with their leafy faces pleading, “take me home!”  But beware, you never know where those seedlings have been – Crammed in a pest-infested greenhouse?  Packed for days in a sweltering truck?

                Start your plants from seeds and you know that’s your precious vegetable, herb, or flower has been nurtured with tender loving care every day of its life.  And better yet, when you harvest seeds for next year’s crop, you’ll get even more plants absolutely FREE!

                In this book you’ll find everything you need to know to successfully harvest seeds from more than 100 common vegetables, annuals, perennials, herbs, and wildflowers, then dry and store them for maximum viability. You’ll also learn how to start seeds indoors to get a jump start on the season, and to prepare your soil beds for planting.
