5.0 out of 5 stars Vegetable seed saving 7 July 2006
I'm a novice gardener, and to save money on seeds wanted to learn more about saving my own. This book is excellent if you don't know where to start, the terminology used is simple, and for the more complex items such as diseases, there is a glossary.

The book covers saving seeds from: beetroot, spinach, beet, chard, broad bean, carrot, celery, celeriac, cucumber, french bean, leafy brassicas, leek, melon, lettuce, onion, parsnip, pea, pepper, chilli, radish, runner bean, spinach, squash (marrows, pumpinks and courgettes), tomato, turnip and swede.

Each bit tells a veg has a small section on growing, and then focuses on selection and saving and drying seeds. Each one also has a couple of heritage vegetables with a description mentioned.

There are a few photos and some drawn graphics. The only thing that would have been nice, is a few more indepth picture, but she explains pretty well.

I would definatly recommend this book, to any seed saver.

5.0 out of 5 stars well saved, sir 19 Aug 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was desperate to find a book which could point me in the right direction for saving the seeds of as many of the veggies I grow each year - and this book is it.

I've already begun my mission to save myself a load of money for next year. The test will come when I try to grow my own from these seeds but I remain confident. Sue Strickland tells it how it is in a very straightforward manner. If anything, it can be a little repetitive if you try to read right through the chapters. However, for dipping in on a particular vegetable it is perfect. More importantly, perhaps, she has encouraged me to consider some of the rarer or less well-known varieties, so I suspect any savings I make on the traditional veg will be spent on a few of these rarer types. At least I can save these seeds for the following year.

If only we have a summer next year, of course.

5.0 out of 5 stars simple and elegant 26 Sep 2008
an excellent book for any one intereted in seed saving, written for the UK using information gathered from the heretidge seed library at the henry dobleday reserch ascosiation (HDRA). includes information on growing, rouging, pollination and collection of a wide veriet6y of commonly grown vegetable species, as well as facintaing stories about specific verieties of heritidge vegetable such as ragged jack kale, johns purple carrots and pews special peas.
seed saving is easier than you could have imagined, start small and you may soon find it has becomes an ingaging and addictive hobby.

rosa bianca aubergines, brown soldger beans or gravedigger peas anyone?
