Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Looking for ways to sow and grow successfully? Take inspiration from Jekka McVicar's wide-ranging experience to produce outstanding results.

Seeds offers invaluable practical hints to help first-time growers and experienced gardeners alike reap the benefits of nature's most miraculous process. As well as basic information about different types of seeds, how they are pollinated and fertilized and advice about when to harvest, how to sort and store seeds, there is detailed information on over 500 genera, encompassing entries for alpines, annuals, grasses, trees, herbs, and vegetables.

Simple step-by-step planting guides emphasize a hands-on approach to growing based on organic principles, and planting directions detail the equipment and materials you will need, as well as the ideal time and conditions for sowing. If you have ever been frustrated by alpine seeds which refused to germinate, or basil seedlings that failed to thrive, or simply want to know how to grow healthy specimens from seeds taken from your garden plants, Jekka's clear and straightforward instructions will increase your chances of success every time.

Use these tried and tested techniques to give you all the confidence and knowledge you need to manage the plants you choose. Stunning illustrations, useful seed suppliers, and handy cross-references combine to make this book a vital companion for anyone who wants to make their growing space a lasting source of pleasure and achievement.
