The Seed Savers Handbook is a timeless classic written in 1993 by Michel and Jude Fanton, founders of The Seed Savers' Network. Designed especially for Australian and New Zealand cultures, this comprehensive guide is applicable to gardeners and seed enthusiasts worldwide. With over 39,000 copies sold, this 180-page treasure is adorned with stunning original illustrations that bring its content to life.

Dive into the first eight chapters to explore global seed issues and the practicalities of saving your own seeds. The majority of the handbook provides detailed seed-saving information on 117 food plants, including vegetables, culinary flowers, herbs, and spices. Each plant entry features a description, wild origins, cultivation instructions, seed-saving or propagation methods, seed storage, and medicinal and culinary uses.

Grounded in principles of permaculture, biodiversity, organics, and companion planting, this handbook is more than just a reference book. Michel and Jude Fanton have drawn from their extensive experience and research to create a reliable guide for propagating and breeding both common (corn, tomatoes, beans, cabbages, etc.) and unusual vegetables (turmeric, peanuts, and various gourd species).

The Seed Savers Handbook also includes an impressive selection of Asian and South American vegetables, herbs, and spices, making it an essential resource for gardeners seeking to diversify their crops and culinary experiences.
