The definitive guide to saving seeds


My friend and I made a trip from Rochester to SSE on Nov 1st, the day after they close for the season. We were graciously welcomed into the gift shop. I purchased many things but this book is my favorite. It is the encyclopedia of seed saving. I recommended it to many people, including Youtubers. It was featured on a recent video. I hope as a result more people will find this amazing resource. You don't need another book on saving seed.

For those willing to this!


Love this book! I got a copy last year (2021) and I am finally able to get into it this year with summer right around the corner. The book is definitely large, but it explains in good detail each step of the process of saving the seeds and it also gives lots of other garden facts and tips. It's definitely something that needs to be on your shelf!

A must have for the seed saver

Great book


Very Informative on many things not just the seed saving. Love it as a reference for my farm!
