One of my most used books in 40 yrs of gardening. Wore out my first copy, gave my second to my daugjter when she took up seed gardening so now I'm on my 3rd copy. Yep, I highly recommend this book.

This is probably the most used book in my house. It has so many dog ears and dirt on the cover that you can tell it is much used. I would never trade this book for anything.
It gives you all the information you need to grow many different species from seed. It has the difficulty level, the temps needed, how much to cover the seeds, and days to germination.
If you are crazy about seeds, you MUST have this book on your shelves.

A great reference book for growing annuals, perennials and bulbs from seed. Contains an A-Z dictionary of plants with plant characteristics, detailed indoor and outdoor sowing and transplanting instructions, plus a little info on growing on. There is also a photo gallery of some flowers, and a handy visual chart that lists hardiness, light requirements, bloom period, height, and color that you can skim to pick plants with specific requirements. Definitely a must-have reference if you're growing from seed.

Very good reference for any gardener that wish to start their own seedlings. The list of plants is quite extensive with a drawing of the plant and its description and cultural needs.

I'd passed this book up several times until I got the brilliant idea to grow my own perennials from seed. The book is comprehensive and incredibly helpful, providing information on propagation by seed or division, as well as great cultural information.

I think this is an excellent book. I am a beginner to all things gardening related. This book gives excellent information on seed starting, germination and more on a horde of annuals and perennials. I checked it out from the library twice and bought it today, I refer to it often.

A must-have for seed growers! Gives information on germination times, conditions, temps, and planting depths. Also provides info on transplanting outdoors and general care once your little seedlings are mature plants.

This is an indispensable book for those wanting to start propagating from seed or for experienced gardeners alike.

This is my garden bible! If you don't know the botanical name, the common names are listed in the back and then refers you to the botanical name. It gives you all the information from sowing seed, light, temps, height, etc. It also tells you when to deadhead, save seed, divide, etc. This book goes to the garden with me when I plant. GREAT book!

Fantastic! I'll even say it again. Fantastic!

Subtitled "How To Grow Over 500 Annuals, Perennials, and Herbs" that in itself should explain what's inside the covers of this book!

Just as in a garden, each entry is given a place of its own but yet is not being slighted by others.

The information for each contains what type plant it is, what zone they grow in, the time of flowering (spring, summer, winter, fall) plus gives info pertaining to when to start seeds, how long till they germinate, what temps to grow them on, whether they require full sun or shade, etc.

Get the book! This one, along with "Seed To Seed" (Suzanne Ashworth) is a must for beginners as well as the seasoned gardener.
