Gardening with Heirloom Seeds by Lynn Coulter(GWHS)
A resource for gardeners, cooks, and plant lovers of all levels of expertise who want to find, share, and propagate the seeds of heirloom flowers, fruits and vegetables.
In these beautifully illustrated pages, Lynn Coulter describes fifty treasured heirloom species, from Frenchman Darling, a flowering herb whose seeds were pocketed by Napoleon Bonaparte when he invaded Egypt in 1798, to Snow White beets, an old Dutch favorite that will not stain the cook's fingers red. Most of the plants included here will grow all across the United States; a few are best suited for warmer climates.
The text is sprinkled throughout with practical advice from heirloom gardeners and lists sources for finding the seeds of many old varieties. Because it also provides ample room for making notes, Gardening with Heirloom Seeds can be used year after year and can become an heirloom in its own right - a personal journal to pass along to the next generation of gardeners.
Includes an exhaustive listing of sources for heirloom seeds and numerous color and black & white illustrations.
