Seedswap : The Gardener's Guide to Saving and Swapping Seeds
(c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
For many, the growing trend of organic gardening is challenge enough. Jeffery takes gardening to a new and often neglected level, that of understanding the heritage of the seeds being cultivated. Under the rubric of "seed activism," Jeffery's book serves not only as a general reference guide to understanding seeds and their growth habits, but also explores the larger mystery of the heritage of seeds and the benefits of preserving and sharing them. Gardeners from the U.K, as this author is, understand gardening broadly, because of the robust and refined gardening culture there, coupled with the ongoing innovations due to the constraint of limited geography. As a result, Jeffery offers expertise that is smart, simple, and practical. Seed-swapping etiquette must be upheld (the author gives advice), but once the rules of the game are realized, the world of swapping seeds is invigorating and satisfying. This helpful volume serves the earnest gardener who is in it for the long haul. (Jan. 7) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
