As an amateur gardener I really appreciated Starting & Saving Seeds. Author and gardening expert Julie Thompson-Adolf takes the confusion out of the entire process for newbies and avid gardeners alike. I especially appreciated the hints to encourage stubborn seeds. The DIY tutorials are very helpful and the accompanying photography is stunning.

Most of the gardening books I have thumbed through always seem to start with the assumption that you already have seeds or seedlings ready to go. This is probably the most complete book I have come across as far as saving & starting seeds. The first three-quarters or so of the book are filled with beautiful, full-color photographs, tutorials & how-tos. The last quarter has individual information for harvesting and starting a variety of plants. While I received a free digital version of this book, I will be adding the hardcover to my library not only for the information but it is just in general a gorgeous book.

A definitive guide to choosing what green babies you want in your garden, how to start from scratch, and how to collect seeds from what you have grown. Extensive details are given for many kinds of fruits, vegetables, flowers, and herbs.  There is a fantastic index in the back and a huge list of resources. This is a reference you'll want to keep on your shelf and revisit again and again. I received this book through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
