Reclaim the joy and independence that comes from saving your own seeds.

Many home gardeners refuse to eat a grocery store tomato, but routinely buy commercial seeds, sometimes from thousands of miles away. And while seed saving can appear mysterious and intimidating, even the home gardener with limited time and space can experience the joy and independence it brings, freeing them from industry and the annual commercial seed order.

Beginning Seed Saving for the Home Gardener explores how seed saving is both easier than we think and essential for vibrant, independent, and bountiful gardens.

Coverage includes:

  • Why seeds saving belongs in the home garden
  • Principles of vegetative and sexual reproduction
  • Easy inbreeding plants, including legumes, lettuce, tomatoes, and peppers
  • Plants with a few more challenges, including squash, spinach, onions, and parsley
  • Brief discussion of more difficult crops, including corn, carrots, and cabbage.
