This book presents for each vegetable or grain plant various general headings : botanical classification, history, nutrition, gardening advice. It then presents two headings linked to the reproduction of the plants, " pollination " and " seed production ", which set out in detail the different types of pollination, the nature of the plant (autogamous or allogamous), the required distances for isolation, the technique of producing the seed and advice relating to the cleaning, drying, sieving and storing of the seed. There is sometimes an additional heading "varietal creation" for the gardeners wishing to create their own varieties.
You will also find a directory presenting around 2500 varieties or species. We have expanded our research of heirloom varieties and now propose in the directory : more than 600 varieties of tomatoes, 50 varieties of eggplants, 370 varieties of sweet and hot peppers, 200 varieties of squashes, 50 varieties of melons, 130 varieties of lettuces, etc. Each variety is fully described with all its characteristics set down.
