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.
