16 of 16 people found the following review helpful By Lisa Wagner on November 11, 2001
Format: Paperback
This is the first book I've found that specializes in growing from seed. It gives some good advice on equipment, and some good insights into procedure. It is published by Burpee and somewhat biased toward Burpee products. A few of the charts in the appendix are indespensible -- such as first- and last-frost dates by city, and recommended seed-starting and planting times for vegetables. Unfortunately there is not also such a list for flowers and seed-fruit, but it is a good starting place. It should also be noted that 155 of the books 256 pages are spent on a plant-by-plant index that provides information similar to that provided in other garden books, only scewed slightly towards growing from seed. So less than half the book is really focused on seed-starting.

Every thing you need to know about starting plants from seed. This book is an encyclopedia listing hundreds of plants, with many pictures. Detailed information about starting each from seeds. Before you buy seeds, get this book.

Format: Paperback
One of two mandatory books for gardeners who can't afford the $200 Ortho book. First comes Sunset's Western Garden Book and then comes this Burpee seed book - ever wonder how come those Dogwood never seem to germinate - or how come Trillium, despite your twenty years of trying, just seem to lie there mocking you? This book explains all those arcane secrets that seem to defy any logic you can come up with.
