New to seed saving? Don’t know where to begin and need some help?
We developed this kit from tools we regularly use in selecting, germination testing and storing seeds in our business, as well as including some other very useful items that will set you up for success.
This kit has all of the tools you need to get started in saving your favorite vegetable, herb or flower seeds.
Learning to save seeds – even one variety – will help you become a better gardener as you learn the complete life cycle and what conditions create better seeds. Every season you will learn new things that will improve your abilities and your garden’s productivity.
The Garden Journal has sections in it for notes on crops you’ve saved seed from, and the Seed Collecting & Saving Chart is a concise, precise guide that is laminated so you can take it into the garden with you for a quick and handy reference. We’ve included storage bags and envelopes for large, medium and small seeds – along with a permanent Sharpie marker to label the date collected, name of variety and other details. The seed germination paper is professional grade, non-toxic, with moisture-holding capability to assure germination consistency. These papers have become the accepted standard for seed germination testing worldwide. These papers are only sold by the box and are difficult to find for the home gardener, so we’ve included six full-size sheets that can be cut down to fit your seed germination size needs.
Please note: This kit is the tool portion, meant to accompany a good seed saving book, such as Saving Vegetable Seeds or Seed to Seed.
