review 1: Some what disappointed in this incredibly cursory handling of the topic of seed saving.Bare specifics of information listed, for example "bright light, low light". But it doesn't talk about temperature requirements (example, regardless of how much light tropical and sub tropical plants get, they need to be kept above certain temperatures--frequently temperatures that are much, much, much high than freezing) so if you live in the north it's unlikely you will be able to afford to keep your heater high enough to make certain foods fruit, and none of that info is listed.better for a conversation starter than for anyone who really intends to eat what they grow.
review 2: I haven't tried to grow any of the plants in this book, but this inforation it provides inspired
... more me to try to do a little gardening this summer (some in the ground and some on windowsills.) With zero gardening experience to speak of, I've grown yellow pear tomatoes, grape tomatoes, green onions, bell peppers, and some sort of mysterious squash vine (that never grew fruit). None of these plants were grown form store-bought seeds or seedlings. less

Great ideas for growing unusual houseplants using common veggies and fruit seeds.
I could have written this in grade school...done it all
Really for 5th grade science projects.
A fun book, with lots of cute ideas.
