Back Garden Seed Saving

Subtitle: Books Gifts


This product is out of stock, please select a different size or colour

The latest of runner beans may give long stringless pods, but will they crop well on a cold windswept site? Dwarf peas may be the easiest to grow commercially, but you will still find the six foot types in many gardens – they look attractive, crop for longer and taste ‘like peas used to taste’. Whatever the benefits of modern hybrids, old varieties still have much to offer gardeners.


In this book you can find out about some of the vegetable varieties no longer found in the seed catalogues, and others that are there now but may not be for much longer. It introduces you to some of the gardeners who grow such varieties, their tales and tips, and their infectious enthusiasm. Most importantly it gives easy to follow crop-by-crop guidelines to help you save seeds for yourself.
