Suzanne Ashworth, 2nd edition,2002, 228 pp.
A World of Seeds and Plants,
A completely updated and much expanded version of one of the most dog-eared references on our office shelf. Suzanne includes state-of-the-art information, but she is always careful to include only proven techniques. A good basic introduction to seed-saving, followed by very detailed coverage of each plant family, including just about any vegetable you would ever want to grow, plus some grains. Botanical classification, pollination, crossing and isolation, seed production, harvesting, and processing are all covered thoroughly.
